Enter the Splash and Dash

The SportPursuit Splash & Dash is an open water aquathlon (swim and run) with two challenging distances...

SPRINT: A 750m swim followed by 5km run. Great for the newcomer or improver

STANDARD: A 1500m swim followed by 10km run. For those looking for a real tough challenge.

We have also added a relay entry for each distance - in teams of two, one person swims and the other runs. 

We have prizes provided by our partners SportPursuit and some amazing goody bags from finish line sponsors Whole Foods Market in Stoke Newington. We'll also have a masseuse on the finish line to help with those aching limbs

Sign up here.


Four days to go!

With four days to go we have now published the provisional wave times and start list which can be seen here.

Now is a nice time to mention our race partners SportPursuit. Their support in making this event happen has been significant - make sure you pop along to their tent on race day to pick up your race certificate, get your photo taken and meet the team!

Please note, at current wetsuits are not compulsory but are highly recommended, especially for anyone other than the gnarliest of veterans to open water swimming. If there is a dip in temperatures we will review the situation at the weekend, so please prepare for the worst!


Six Days to go...

So it's six days until the SportPursuit Splash series begins, starting with the SportPursuit Splash this Sunday (you can still enter here).

With all this looking forward, now is a nice time to think about the finish line. The lovely Whole Foods Market in Stoke Newington will be providing goodie bags for all finishers in the race.

To prepare for your first race of the summer, why not try one of these recipes?
