Olympic Distance

Swim Route - 1500m - View the route

The swim route starts from the Groves and is a 800m upstream / 700m downstream course this year exiting at the slip road by the Boathouse Inn.  Waves are set off at 10 minute intervals from 07:00 with most waves sizes kept less than 100.  The river is about 80m wide for the whole course so there is plenty of room for all.
