Refreshments and equipment storage

Refreshments (banana and glucose tabs) are available after the race. Please note that due to King's Aquathlon 2021 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.

Please note, that unlike in previous years, you will not be able to store your equipment in the registration room. However, 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.
