Sunday Swim for Sport and Recreation



PLEASE READ ALL THE DETAILS BELOW CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU BOOK: Your Emergency Contact MUST be accessible during and immedaitely after your swim and you MUST sign the disclaimer and fill in your medical details. Please note (re below) parking is £1 with a voucher you pick up after the swim. In recognition of the charge Inspire2tri has reduced the swim cost by 50p from 2 years ago. We hope you think this is fair as we also have more COVID related costs.

Inspire2tri partners with Anglian Water to bring Open Water Swimming for Health and for Sport to Rutland Water (Whitwell site).

We deliver weekly Sunday morning swimming from May (2022 date TBC) for triathletes, sportive & recreational swimmers. We are proud to be a fully accredited venue for the new Beyond Swim initiative from Triathlon England, Swim England and RLSS UK in the next chapter of their open water swimming journey.

Our booking/pre-payment system is designed to be as easy and fast as possible on the day. And if for any reason WE have to cancel the session you will automatically receive a full refund of your payment.

This is a 2hr session but you can arrive at any time from 7:30am (check in opens) to 9:15am (latest water entry time). We recommend arriving 10mins before you want to start your swim. At check-in you will be issued with a Tydek pre-marked wristband and you're ready to swim! On exit from the water you will swap your wristband for your £1 discount parking ticket (3hrs max stay).
