Race 1: 6 June. Box End, lake swim (Bedfordshire)
Race 2: 13 June. South Cerney (Gloucestershire)
Race 3: 8 August. Bournemouth, sea swim (Dorset)
Race 4: 26 September. Dorney Lake, lake swim (Berkshire)
Aqua Sphere have chosen each venue for its own unique swimming environment. South Cerney and Box End are very sheltered and should be flat calm water swims.
The sea swim in Bournemouth is obviously going to be dependent on the weather and will provide the long swimmer with a challenge!
Dorney lake is a prestigious 2012 Olympic venue and is the setting for the final race. The 2km long crystal clear lake can create its own weather system and enjoys some quite strong breezes across the water! Dorney is the last race in the series and is the grand final.
Total points will be worked out and Aqua Spheres big prize handed out to the winners.
Facilities At each location Votwo will have our swim shop selling discounted wetsuits, goggles etc.
Wetsuit hire is available. Pre book via your online entry account and collect your suit on the day.
Points will be awarded at each swim race 1 point for a win, 2 points for 2nd, etc. Your top 3 results will be used to determine your placing. Race 4 at Dorney lake is compulsory in order to qualify for a series prize. All series prizes will be distributed at Race 4 on completion of the event.
