Novice - 400m swim +  5km run



Adults - 25 pounds

Race Info

The swim will be in the 50m pool and the run will be along the beach with the finish line being at the back of Aberdeen Sports Village. The whole race will be chip-timed.

Registration will be in the Aquatics Studio of Aberdeen Sports Village (enter via the Aquatics Centre entrance and proceed straight up the stairs).

Race briefing will be held online a few days before the race. Prizes TBC. 

From all participants, we request an estimated 400m swim time to allow us to sort them into heats.  It is important that the estimated swim times are as accurate as possible to ensure that the participants are in the correct heat. 


Race briefing - Online prior to the event

Registration - 10:30-12:00

Transition opening times - 11:00-12:15

Open Race starts - 12:45

Novice Race starts - 13:15

Please be as accurate as possible to help us ensure a smoothly running event! Please arrive poolside 15 minutes before your planned start time!

Refreshments and equipment storage

Refreshments (banana and glucose tabs) are available after the race. Please note that due to King's Aquathlon 2022 being plastic-free, there will be no bottled water distributed at the finish line. Participants thus are encouraged to bring their own reusable bottles of water as a refreshment after the race.

You will be able to store your equipment in the registration room. Alternatively, the lockers at the swimming pool changing room will accommodate your belongings while you race. Please bring a 1-pound coin in order to operate the lockers, or alternatively, you can store your equipment in your car, if you are using one. Free car parking is available on ASV premises.
