Time Trial - 1000m


This is a time trial.

Swimmers will swim in a heat. Your start time will be confirmed at least 2 weeks before the event.

Each heat will have a maximum time allowance.

Distance = 1000m

Time allowance = 30 minutes (please email if you are confident with the distance but slightly slower than the time - we will be able to accommodate your entry).

Once you book you will receive a confirmation email including a datasheet to provide times. The information will be used to seed swimmers.

This event will run following a similar format to any one of our training sessions. It will start and finish in the water.

Swimmers will be required to bring their own swim hats.

This is not a competition - this is a time trial. The purpose of these events is to engage swimmers in sea-based events.

The swim is based at the Royal William Yard/Firestone Bay, Plymouth.

Safety cover will be provided by qualified lifeguards.

Swimmers MUST adhere to the government's social distancing rules.

A wetsuit is preferred - Tow Floats are optional. If you wish to race without a wetsuit, approval must be granted first.

To access this event swimmers need to be able to provide a 400m time and must be registered to a club (swim or tri) or have previous experience with Ace Swimming. This is a measure to ensure swim ability before the event, not to exclude. If you wish to swim but do not meet the above criteria, please message to discuss options.

The water temperature will be between 12-18 degrees. We will provide support in the water but it is the swimmer's responsibility to ensure they warm up before and after the event.

We do not take any responsibility for the arrival or departure. We would however ask that all participants (and spectators) respect social distancing, especially on land. As spectators, please be aware of the size of your group.

Note: the event will run for 4 hours but you are booking 1 swim slot with a maximum time per heat. Payment is non-refundable (as per our T&Cs). If we have to cancel the event, you will be issued a full refund.
