CARDIFF BAY TRY A TRI SWIM

Cardiff, South Glamorgan

CF10 5AL, Cardiff, United Kingdom

Sat 24th June 2023

4 races

£22.99 - £54.99

Organiser's Description

Cardiff Bay is supplied by two rivers to form a 500-acre (2.0 km2) freshwater lake around the former dockland area south of the City Centre. The 'bay' was formerly tidal, with access to the sea limited to a couple of hours each side of high water but now provides 24-hour access through three locks.

Swimming in the Bay is only allowed when authorised by the Harbour Authority so by taking part in this event you will join an exclusive group of Cardiff Bay swimmers!

This event has been created primarily for triathletes looking to warm up or gain open water experience; however it is open to everyone and with four different distances this event has something for all from first time open water swimmers, to experienced swimmers looking for a challenge over a longer distance.
