We are proud to be using the Nowca lake management system to run our lake which means you are required to purchase an annual membership to swim and participate in our competitions.

This means that you only have to provide your emergency contact details and medical information once and we can then track you safely in and out of the water every time you swim. You will also be able to receive emails logging your swim distance and time so you can track your performance and improvement from your first swim. You can also pre-puchase and bulk buy swims onto the band.

Register on the NOWCA website, selecting Race Hub as your home venue, and you can then collect your wrist band from Race Hub – Nowca Membership Annual Cost = £12. Click here to register now!


During 2020 we will be running a series of novice and intermediate group coached sessions run by British Triathlon coaches.

Sessions will include correct donning and doffing of wetsuit, acclimatisation, sighting, swim technique, race starts, turns and swimming in a group.
