In partnership with Stevenage Leisure, TriSports, McMullen’s Family Brewers and Pubs, Hawkins Sports Massage and Oriel Finance, Freedom Tri are pleased to stage the twelfth Duck’N’Dash Aquathlon at the unique Letchworth Outdoor Swimming Pool. The ‘Duck’N’Dash’ is a multi-sport race combining a 400m pool-swim with a 5k run in the local nature reserve of Norton Common.

There are shorter alternatives for juniors between the ages of 08-14 years and a Team Relay challenge for those that prefer to call on the athletic talents of friends, family or work colleagues to either run or swim.

This year, we’re opening the event up to everyone, we are working with the BTF to involve visually impaired and mixed ability athletes.

This friendly event is open to a maximum entry of 350 participants and will feature chip-timed, age-group, male/female competition for anyone between the ages of 08-80 years that would like to test themselves on land and in water.

If you can swim 8 lengths of the outdoor 50m pool and can run 5km (reduced distances for younger age groups!), then this is your chance to experience the fastest-growing participation sport in the UK today. For the more competitive athlete looking for a local training opportunity, you won’t be disappointed with the superb venue and delightful setting that Letchworth Garden City has to offer.
