THE RACE IS ON !!!!  SUNDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER 2021

Entrants from the Covid postponed 2020 race will have received an email from the Race Director explaining the options.

Please click here to download the 2020 Aquathlon Race Pack for information. 

The Taunton Deane Aquathlon has been an annual event at Wellington Sports Centre since 1998. The Covid postponed 2020 race would have been our 21st Anniversary but as of April 2021 I am now pleased to announced there will be a race in 2021 - SUNDAY 19TH SEPTEMBER 2021

To make the Race Day an anniversary special there will be aquathlon and triathlon races on the 19th. See the Triathlon Race Page for details of that race.

ALSO as this past year has been tough to train you will be able to change races for free so if you enter the full distance and things don't go to plan and you want to do the short course instead you can. You will get details about this with your race pack and start times, etc nearer the date.

We are very pleased to have partnered with University Centre Somerset as sponsors of this event.

Races for all abilities from beginners to experienced athletes. 

The Short Course race is a 500m indoor heated pool swim (20 lengths) followed by a 5k run.

The Full Distance race is a 1000m swim (40 lengths) with approximately 10k run. The run is gently undulating on roads and lanes.

(Note: under BTF rules you must be 17 years old or over on 31.12.21 to be able to race an open road 10km run and as such the Youths (15-16) race is Short Course Only. If you are 16 on 19.9.21 but will be 17 before 31.12.21 you can do the Full Distance).

We pride ourselves on putting on a friendly, SAFE, well organised event.  This is a BTF sanctioned race with signage, marshalling and chip timing. Wellington Sports Centre have very good changing facilities and beverages will be available. There is good parking in Wellington.

There is a FREE training day on Sunday 5th September 2021 where you can practice the course and get top tips from club members and coaches.

Please dont wait for the closing date as we need to know that we have enough entrants to make the races viable. We are trying to make aquathlon / triathlon accessible to all and local so please support us - we will consider deferals and other circumstances if you enter and can't race (we are not an event business like ironman and challenge where we take your money and don't care - we want you to get your monies worth and you will).
