Check out our Flickr gallery of previous swims in the Adur
Following the success of previous swims in the Adur, our new challenge for 2017 matches our Ironman Swim in the River Arun. However, this one will be 5km but with the tide all the way so it’ll definitely be the quickest 5km you’ll ever swim! You have the option to swim with fins or not – you decide! We’ll take you by coach to the start and then you can make your back downstream to the finish at Shoreham. You’ll still have to negotiate the sandbanks for the quickest route. The start time is likely to be around 4pm and will be dependent on river and weather conditions, but our aim is to give you the best possibility of securing your personal best. All the usual REP safety cover will be provided, including RIB’s, kayaks and safety spotters on the river bank and we’re hoping to use the old AOAC as our base showers and refreshments – Shoreham Town Centre will also be open and all within the foothills of the South Downs National Park.
Entry Fee: 5km Swim = £28
Race HQ is the Adur Outdoor Activities Centre, Brighton Road, Shoreham-by-Sea, BN43 5LT. The registration and finish will all be at this location. Shoreham is about 8 miles west of Brighton and 7 miles east of Worthing.
