Monday 12th August SAC Summer Series race

August04/ 2013


 Monday 12th August 2013

The next SAC Multisport Summer Series event will take place on Monday 12th August either at Southwater Country Park (assuming the lake is suitable to swim in) or at Widewater, Shoreham depending on the weather.  If we have a fine bright fairly calm evening, we’ll do a Swim/Run at Widewater. If the weather is not suitable for sea swimming, we’ll do a Mini Tri based from Southwater Country Park. The final decision will be made next weekend so please keep both venues in mind.

Plan A – Southwater:


  • Swim 1 lap of the lake (approx 500m),
  • Bike 1 lap from the country Park up Cripplegate Lane, left to Southwater (South) roundabout, north up the A24 to Hop Oast roundabout and left back through Southwater to Cripplegate Lane and back to the Country Park (approx 8.5K)
  • Run along Downs Link to Copsale and back (approx 4K)

Meet at 6:15pm for transition set-up, briefing etc. Start as near 6:45pm as possible. One wave only and no drafting on the bike. Wetsuits mandatory (Country Park rule).


Plan B – Widewater


  • 700m sea swim
  • 5K run

Same format as the one organised by Graham Parsons in July. Meet at Widewater Car Park at 6:30pm ready for a 7pm start. The tide should be pretty low again, so it’s quite safe as you should be able to stand up in the water for some of the swim!

I will need marshals and timekeepers so please step forward and volunteer if you don’t want to compete. If at Shoreham I’d also ideally like someone on standby to rescue swimmers in difficulty (canoe, paddle board etc).

If you do want to take part, please e-mail me by the middle of this week (Wed 7th August) to confirm. Also please state a preference for Plan A (Southwater) or Plan B (Widewater). If everyone wants one version, then that’s the one we’ll do!!
