A swim and run multisport event for everyone from 8 to 80 years hosted by Freedom Tri, Hertfordshire’s friendliest triathlon club.


In partnership with Stevenage Leisure and the Letchworth Garden City Heritage Foundation, Freedom Tri are pleased to stage the seventh 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 variants for juniors between the ages of 08-16 years and a Team Relay challenge for those that prefer to combine the athletic talents of friends, family or work colleagues. If you would like to run or swim only and would like us to match you with a Relay partner of similar ability, please email us on: duckndash@gmail.com

This friendly event is open to a maximum entry of 300 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 3.11 miles, 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.
