This is the third and final race in the Non Sweet Caroline Aquathlon series – With no touching hands, no reaching out, no touching me, no touching you!

This was the first licensed multi-sport event in the UK, following the first national lockdown in 2020.

The format will be a time trial event with swimmers taking to the water 1 at a time and completing a 750m swim in the beautiful Sh2out accredited open water swimming lake, followed by a 5K cross country run around the stunning grounds at Merchant Taylors’ School in Northwood.

This event is open to everyone, regardless of ability.

Series entrants will be automatically entered into this event. If you wish join us for all 3 events there are series tickets available HERE.
