Take the plunge at Aquathon

First published in News by

HARDY swimmers and runners are invited to sign up for Barry Island’s first Aquathon event which will see competitors battle the waves before a run.

Competitors will face a 650m swim in the sea off Whitmore Bay, followed by a five kilometre run along the promenade during the event on Sunday, September 28.

100 places are available and deadline for entry is September 19.

Athletes must be a minimum of 18 years of age with parental consent granted for anyone between 16 and 17.

The first man and woman will gain a trophy.

Swimmers take the plunge at 9.15am and wetsuits are compulsory until the transition area on the eastern side of Whitmore Bay.

The swimmers-turned-runners will then head between both headlands.
