MVH Summer Aquathon Series: ALL abilities invited

Aquathon 2016 Series Results HERE

We need to see more of you joining in with this excellent competitive training event.

The format and the benefits are described below. For the price of the standard open water swim, you get all the benefits of doing this tough event. Great race prep, great transition practice and the handicap final is worth qualifying for! The handicap means that this event favours new athletes and improvers and we really want to encourage these people to come and join in with the usual suspects. Hope to see you ALL there.

Open Water season Tips

Some practical videos for donning the rubber and some important advice from Head Coach Dave Brayer.

Dave and some of the experienced swimmers and coaches will be on hand for advice at both Repton pool and at Hall Croft Farm OW venue on the 30th. Don’t feel you need to take the plunge on week 1 if you are new to OW……but do come and talk to us and if you’re ready, we are there to support.

Don’t forget your disclaimers and emergency contact details and keep an eye on facebook or emails to confirm temperatures are high enough to open as planned (link to OW page)

MVH Summer Training Weekend

Following on from fantastic trips to Bala over the last 2 years, the MVH convoy is heading to Yorkshire this July.

This is great training but also an enjoyable social event. Haworth and Hebden Bridge are great tourist spots and the surrounding countryside makes it ideal for WAGs, family or friends to join you for the weekend (as long as they don’t mind losing you – or joining you – as you clock up the training hours!)

If you haven’t yet signed up……what are you waiting for?
