REP Adur Swim, August 2014 by

5km Fin Swim (fins optional) River Adur – Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex.

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 to the start by a vintage Southdowns closed top double deck bus 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 will be approximately 4:30pm 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 with Race HQ at the Sea Scouts building by Norfolk Bridge on the A259 – Shoreham Town Centre will also be open and all within the foothills of the South Downs National Park.

Saturday 26th August 2017 | 4:30pm  Start – Bank Holiday weekend.
