Ensuring open water swimming events are delivered to approved standards.

Recent years have seen a large growth in open water swimming events offered by the commercial sectors, venues and triathlon clubs. British Triathlon are recognised as the governing body responsible for permitting triathlon events, but there is currently no single body offering the same service and support to open water swimming event organisers.

SH2OUT will develop a supportive process for open water swimming event organisers to work through, which will not only provide peace of mind to event organiser, but will also provide a valuable promotional tool for events. This will ensure the events are delivered to approved SH2OUT standards resulting in an amazing swimming experience for participants.

SH2OUT will also deliver opportunities and new events, that draw together the sports of triathlon, lifesaving and swimming. If you would like to learn more about SH2OUT event opportunities or future plans in this area please contact
