The Devil's Aquathlon
The Devil’s Aquathlon is a tough swimming and running challenge which raises funds for two charities and is designed for competitors aged 19 and above (or 17 and above for shorter swim distance) who enjoy a personal or team challenge. The heating to the main pool will have been turned off at the end of our summer season and the water temperature will have dropped to about 21C. Wetsuits are advisable but not mandatory.
The event starts with the swim in the 50m main pool and competitors then run up to the Devil’s Chimney on Leckhampton Hill, before returning to finish in the Lido grounds.
1: 2 km swim, 10 km run
2: 400m swim, 10 km run
