RLSS UK Open Water Festival[]

  • When: 26 September 2015
  • Where: Ragley Hall, Warwickshire, B49 5HJ England (also known as GBR) Flag of the United Kingdom.svg

The RLSS UK has launched its first Open Water Festival to offer first timers, novice and experienced open water swimmers the chance to experience the freedom of open water swimming in the grounds of one of the country’s premier stately homes.

Ragley Crawl allows first time dippers to regular participants to tackle one-mile, half-mile or team relay swims. Rookie Raid, a 200m swim and a 400m run aim at eight to 12-year-olds will also take place.

The day will be bursting with family activities, stalls and refreshment – all in the aid of drowning prevention. Guests on the day include Oceans Seven swimmer Adam Walker, Professor Greg Whyte and Olympian Mark Foster.

There will be a competitive element to the event but the primary goal is for swimmers to enjoy the experience and for RLSS UK to deliver drowning prevention messages and expand safer open water swimming opportunities across the UK.
