  • Grafham Water Keen as Mustard Safety Cover

    Posted by Jason Pink on 24 June 2021

    Grafham Water Keen as Mustard Safety Cover - Sunday 27 June

    Thank you to everyone who has offered to help out on Sunday.

    The website and racebook can be found here... www.akamustard.events/grafham-water-swimrun-2019

    Please could we meet at the Grafham Water visitors centre carpark for 7.45am, this will give us to to get briefed and get in place. The first swim legs are close to the carpark so there is slightly less of a rush.

    The first race (the 21km race) starts at 8.30 am, the 10km at 9.00am and the 5km race 0930. 

    All the 10km and 5km swim legs are on the north side of the reservoir, but there are three 21km swim legs on the south side. Assuming the height barriers are open we can access the swim legs on the south side by driving around, but we may have to paddle across.

    I will have a provisional plan in place when we arrive but prepare to adapt and improvise.

    Dress for the weather, I have no idea what it will be.

    If you have any questions EMAIL me at [email protected]

    See you there
