What is Aquathlon?

The sport of aquathlon consists of a continuous, two-stage race involving swimming followed by running.

Aquathlons are most similar to triathlons, with the key difference being the lack of a cycle leg. Aquathlons take place all year round and range from as short as a 500m pool swim and a 5k run through to 2k (or more) open water swims and 10k runs.

Benefits

Aquathlon offers an all-over body work out that will tone the legs through running, and the arms and upper body through swimming.

Equipment

The kit you need for swimming, swimsuit and goggles. For running, trainers, t-shirt/vest and shorts.
