Join us for this year's SwimRun. A new event for Salty Events.
What is SwimRun?
SwimRun is a multi discipline event, consisting of swimming and running but there is no transition in between each discipline. Athletes were a combination of a wetsuit, trainers, hat and goggles and pull buoy and hand paddles. The wetsuit is typically a short legged wetsuit to enable a less restrictive run, but any wetsuit can be used. The trainers are worn during the swim, and as athletes exit the water, they get straight into the run section. The use of the pull buoy and paddles supports the heavier legs and drag created from the trainers.
Salty Events' SwimRun is with a twist and aims to even out the playing field. "How?" I hear you ask...
The first section of the swim will take you up and across the river, from East to West. You will exit the water at the Adur Rec slip way and begin your first run, around the recreation ground. Once you have returned, you will re enter the water and swim up river to the next slip way where you will then exit. Here you can make the decision to begin your final run back to the finish (for the SwimRun Fun event), or continue to head up river to Cuckoo's corner. You will then enter at the corner and begin your final swim back to the finish.
BUT, the faster you run, the weaker the current will be for your swim. If running isn't your thing, you are in luck. The slower you run, the faster the current will be for your swim.
