the UK’s first activity day dedicated to open water swimming

2012 sees the launch of the UK’s first activity day dedicated to open water swimming, with an estimated 500 visitors and 150 race competitors expected to attend the season opener at the fantastic Reading Lake Hotel, Reading on Saturday 28 April.

The world’s first and only dedicated open water swimming magazine, H2Open, is partnering with event consultants Triathlon Racing Inc to deliver a unique programme of open water swimming events which includes an exhibition, equipment testing, an expert speaker seminar programme, swim demonstrations, the presentation ceremony for the inaugural H2Open Awards, and a 750m no pressure early season practice race.

The organisers are working closely with My Sporting Times, the proprietors of the Tri20 open water swim Centre based at the venue, to offer a taster day to those who are new to swimming in open water and an opportunity for the more experienced swimmer or triathlete for an early season swim, to learn from the experts and to see what products and services are new to the market.

Simon Griffiths, publisher of H2Open magazine said, “At a time when participation in open water swimming is seeing unprecedented growth we believe that we have created a day of activity for everyone, with celebrities, top coaches, and elite swimmers planned to participate. We are keen to encourage the whole family to attend and children as well as adults will be able to take part in the training race or coached sessions,”
