Open water event management documentation
This is a detailed resource explaining the guidance of how to run an open water swimming event.
Brand new to British Swimming and the ASA; the open water event management document was released in September 2011.
Open water swimming events have been recorded with participants in excess of 10,000; this sort of event needs to be carefully planned and set up.
The document includes all aspects to take in to consideration when organising an open water event.
The guidelines explain the roles required to run an event, preparation work involved, safety procedures, risk assessments and how to set your course.
It is designed to leave the organisers and officials feeling fully equipped and ready to launch their next event.
