**** Informal Open Water Swimming- a message from the committee ****

UTC has just started to run some open water sessions on a Monday evening in summer (May 2017). See UTC Facebook page for details.

Beyond this session, the decision of any of our members to engage in open water swimming without safety provision is entirely their own. We remind coaches and members that such sessions are not covered by British Triathlon insurance.

If you choose to go to informal OWS sessions, please do everything you can to keep things as safe as you can for yourself and those around you.




One thought on “Training Sessions

  1. Hi, I’m interested in joining the club but work mostly evenings and at weekends. I was wondering if anyone goes out cycling/running other than stayed training times and if I could come along for a couple of sessions before joining? Thanks, stu.
