The Medway Big Splash Aquathlon

Sunday 21st January 2018

 - Medway Park, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 1HF

2018 entries now closed!

We're pleased to announce that our pool-based Aquathlon is returning to Medway Park in 2018, in partnership with Medway Council as part of The Medway Big Splash.

The course consists of a pool-based swim, followed by a run around the athletics track, and both have excellent viewing facilities for friends and family. All athletes will receive a well-earned finishers' medal. This is designed to be a fun event, and is a great opportunity to have your first go at a multisport race, but it still provides plenty of challenge for the seasoned competitor.

As this is a mid-winter event, the swim and run will not be continuous, but managed as two separate events with a break in between. The race will be professionally chip-timed and is a great way to kick off your early season preparation or to try out multidiscipline sports as a beginner.

With great facilities for both athlete and spectator, why not add The Medway Big Splash Aquathlon to your early-season race calendar.

Please note: We are offering a choice of race distances:

  • 150m swim, 1500m run is open to 9 to 10 yrs
  • 250m swim; 2500m run is for age 11 to 12 yrs
  • 300m swim; 3000m run is for age 13 to 14 yrs, 15-18 and adult ladies
  • 500m swim; 5000m run is open to both adult men and ladies

Please note: Your age group category is determined by your age on 31st December 2018 not by your age on the date of the race.
