Cotswolds Lake 62 Novice Aquathlon
20/05/2018 - Ashton Keynes, Wiltshire

LPS Events organises aquathlon events for athletes of all abilities. An aquathlon event is a competition that is composed of swimming and running. You start with a swim, then transition to your trainers, before finishing the race.

Aquathlon

The concept of an aquathlon event is relatively low cost as you dont require a bike. 

Companies or individuals looking to have an aquathlon event organised by us, please head over to our Event Organisers page.

Preparing for an Aquathlon Event

The key to success in any sporting event is the right training. Leading up to the race you need to plan weekly rides and runs. You should start training around 12 weeks before the race. The more preparation you put in leading up the aquathlon, the better prepared and fit you will be on the day. Try to aim to be running and swimming at least twice a week. You should schedule your swimming and running just as you would for fitness classes or the gym. Part of your training should be running straight after a swim.

The general advice is not start too hard in the swim. Novice athletes should start calmly and save enough energy for the run stage, as the swim can quite often tire you out more than expected. You should always try to think ahead. Never look back and think about the people behind you. Stay focused on what is ahead at all times.

Another tip is to use elastic laces to allow you to put on your trainers with ease, but ensure you practice this as part of your transition training.

Aquathlon events are suitable for those who cannot or do not cycle.
