What can I expect from the Open Water National Masters Championships?

Entry typically rewards you with a swim cap, temporary tattoo, chip (for timing, not eating) and maybe even a high-five.

Like all our Masters events, there is a fun and competitive atmosphere guaranteed, while this one has the benefit of feeling the sun on your back.

Note: we cannot guarantee sun on anyone’s back. This is England. It will probably be raining.
