The Outlaw Open Water Swims cover either 1.2mile or 2.4miles, which are the same distances as the Outlaw Half and full distance triathlon events. The swims take place as part of the Outlaw Triathlon weekend along with kids running events to make this an inclusive weekend with a fun, festival atmosphere.
The courses are simple to navigate and perfect for first-time open water swimmers, along with seasoned athletes looking to challenge themselves. The 1.2mile course covers one lap and the 2.4mile course is two laps.
Any front stroke is permitted in this event and wetsuits are completely optional; swimmers can wear any swimwear of their choice. It is recommended that those who are less confident with open-water swimming wear a wetsuit to help with buoyancy and regulating body temperature in the water.
Minimum age 12 for the 1.2mile event or 14 for the 2.4mile event (age as at 31 December 2021).
