Tooting Bec Lido SwimRun 1

Race Date: Wednesday, 06/06/2018
Race Distance: Other - Aquathon

South London Swimming Club's 'urban' SwimRun event returned for the first of two outings this year, the second being in September. The event consists of four swims (190m, 200m, 400m, 200m) round a lap of Tooting Bec Lido, alternating with four runs (2.6km, 2.2km, 1.9km, 1.9km) on Tooting Common. There are no transitions, competitors go straight from run to swim to run, so swimming with running shoes on and then squelching round the outside of Tooting Common with swim cap and goggles still on before jumping back in the pool for the next swim. Great fun and highly recommended.
