If this is your first race, you need to consider the total distance involved; we recommend entering the sprint race distance rather than the full long course distance. The short course race will give you a good idea of the elements of swimrun, and highlight your weaknesses. Are you confident in open water sea swimming? Or maybe a lake might be your style?
