Leading endurance event organiser, Active Training World (ATW), will now offer swims across their triathlon and multi-sports events as part of their new event programme. The new ‘ActiveSwims’ will take place in both lake and sea locations and will vary in distances from 750m up to 4.5km. The first swim event will take place at Merchant Taylors lake on Saturday 29th May.
ATW have embraced the growth of outdoor swimming outside of the group’s event programme, hosting swims at Merchant Taylors’ lake for all levels of swimmers. Now, as the group’s event programme continues to expand, launching swim only events has become a natural progression.
Founder of Active Training World, one of the largest endurance sport event organisations in the UK, James Shipley comments: “We’re looking forward to welcoming open water swimmers to our events. We have great venues, with stunning waterways, lakes and sea areas. Our triathletes love the opportunity to swim in them and, with the clear surge in outdoor swimming popularity, it made sense to offer them up for swim only events.”
The news of a new series of ActiveSwim events which will make 8 plus of the existing events multi-sport events, comes hand in hand with the launch of an Active Swim World offering not only the new swim events but swim training and access to a lake for swims. Alongside events and swimming opportunities leading outdoor swim and triathlon brand, Zone3, has become the Official Swim Partner for Active Training World offering all athletes access to top kit and expert advice.
