EVENT OVERVIEW

Goodrington Beach, Youngs Park, TQ4 6BU Paignton
As part of the Geopark Triathlon we are offering you a chance to do a 3000m (new for 2019) 1500m or 750m swim in the warm and sheltered waters of Goodrington Sands at the Geopark, Torbay. Because we already have the lifeguards and timing in place we’ve managed to keep the price affordable.

Kit Requirements
Just a swim suit and goggles. Wet suits are not normally required for this swim except in the highly unlikely event that the water temperature is below 14C (See our FAQ). However for first time open water swimmers they are recommended. They will keep you warmer and provide buoyancy that will make swimming easier. Short wetsuits or armless wetsuits are also permitted.
