H2Open Day Set At The Reading Lake Hotel

H2Open Day Set At The Reading Lake Hotel

Joel Enoch, the National Open Water Swimming Ranking Series Coordinator, and Simon Griffiths, Editor and Publisher of H2Open Magazine, announced H2Open Day.

This extravaganza is scheduled for April 28th at the Reading Lake Hotel in England. The special evnt will include demonstrations, coaching sessions, kit testing and the chance to jump into the lake for some pre-season open water practice. H2Open Magazine in coordination with Triathlon Racing, organiser of the Lakeside Triathlon, and the Tri2O team, who hold regular swimming sessions at the hotel, are jointly organising this launch.

On H2Open Day, Joel will explain the National Open Water Swimming Ranking Series and its seven events.

The National Open Water Swimming Series allows pool swimmers to get out of the chlorinated water and discover the freedom of not having to turn every 25 meters. The series will also allow more opportunity for seasoned pool swimmers and triathletes to come together. It will be interesting to see if the technique of the pool swimmers or the open water experience of triathletes wins through across the year.”

1. May 5th – Galeforce Events, 5K Box End Swim, lake near Bedford
2. June 8th – 1.9K The Wales Swim, sea in Tenby
3. July 8th – 1-mile The Henley Mile, river in Henley
