GO TRI - Intro to Open Water swimming in Roker

Saturday 06 August 2022


An instructor led session for beginners, with little or no experience, to experience the freedom of open water swimming.  In this session you will be supported by our British Triathlon qualified open water coach who will lay the foundations regarding what kit to wear during and after your swim, what to expect in and out of the water and how to plan for it.  This small group session will be split between land and water based.  

There are toilets and changing rooms available.

Enjoy a refreshing wild swim around a small course. 

The water temperature must be 11 Degrees Centigrade or over for the Open Water Swimming Session to take place.
If the water temperature is 16 Degrees Centigrade or over, you can choose not to wear a wetsuit.
Access and egress from the sea will be on the beach at Roker.

Wetsuits are available to wear on the day, please contact Sam to request one. sammorgannicholson@britishtriathlon.org
