The venue is ideal for your first open water swim, clean clear spring water doesn’t get much fresher. The events attracted swimmers of all standards last year, from first timers to experienced athletes. Some looking for that social gathering others gaining confidence in open water swimming techniques.

Watch out for the divers and sunken treasure. The Quarry is warmer than many open water venues and very sheltered from the wind an ideal venue for your first open water dip.

Haven’t a wet suit? We have a range of 2XU and AquaSphere suits to hire which will be at all our events this year.
