Rutland Pool 2 Pond Challenge 2017

Challenge Details

We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Catmose Sports, Uppingham School Sports Centre, Anglian Water and SwimRutland to deliver the first pilot of Royal Life Saving Society UK's (RLSS UK) new initiative "Pool to Pond". This initiative enables pool swimmers who have never swum in Open Water to learn relevant skills in the pool, followed by a coaching session in Open Water. We've added our own bonus experience by completing the challenge for you with an entry into the SwimRutland Mini swim on 13th August.
