Estimated swim times

When completing the online entry form, you will be asked for an estimated swim time. It's important you are as accurate as possible as we set swimmers off according to their swim times.

For 750m, the fastest swimmers complete the distance in around 10 minutes, the average time is between 17-18 minutes and the slowest about 30 minutes. We don't mind how long you take but the race runs much more smoothly if everyone is swimming with others of a similar ability. You will be given an opportunity to update your estimated time nearer to race day.
