Come and enjoy a great evening of racing and socialising at Papercourt Open Water Swimming with our Aquathlon & Open Water Swim Race.
Located at Papercourt Sailing Club in Ripley, Surrey we’ve organised an open water aquathlon and swim race to sit alongside our regular Tuesday night swim sessions.
Taking place on the last Friday of July its a great opportunity for local athletes to race and socialise in a safe, well catered, spectator friendly environment. The bar will be open post race for those wanting to relax in the sun with a drink or two and get to know local athletes.

The swim takes place in the Papercourt Sailing Clubs lake.
This open water swim features a deep water start racing out along the lake to two turn buoys before returning back and exiting the water via the entry slipway.
Its then just a short run to transition where you will start your run.
There are 3 swim distances being completed on our lake course
- The 400m swim course shown below as the red dotted line
- The 750m swim course is shown below with the white line
- The 1500m timed swim involves two laps of the 750m swim loop.
- The 3000m timed swim involves four laps of the 750m swim loop.
Straight from transition you will head out through the car park and onto the trails surrounding the sailing club.
We’ve designed a flat picturesque 2 lap trail run around the grounds of the sailing club. The trail is generally good under foot but with some areas of uneven ground.
