SUSTAINABILITY (Important Bit!)

We're trying to raise our sustainability game in 2022and beyond. Yes, it's small steps, but it's a start, and every bit helps. There is one main change to the way we're running events we want you to be aware of, and need your collaboration on please;

Cups: feed station cups are our biggest source of waste. So we're stopping using them. Completely. Single use cups are entirely avoidable. There will be no cups at feed stations. Instead (for 2022 only), and if you need one,  we will supply you with a re-usable foldable 'soft cup' for use as part of your race entry. You will need to carry this with you and use it when you finish your swim.
