OPEN WATER SWIM SESSIONS
After an extremely successful 2016 season our Open Water Swim Sessions will be returning in 2017. We will host three weekly sessions at are home at the Old Merchant Taylors’ Clubhouse from 22nd April to 10th September.
Our sessions are a great opportunity to practice swimming in the open water and they are open to all ages and abilities. Merchant Taylors’ club house offers excellent changing and shower facilities and there is even a bar that opens on a Wednesday evening which is a very popular regular social for swimmers.
Clubs are welcome at our sessions and we offer discounted entry for large groups. Children are also welcome if accompanied by an adult and are 8+ years old and we have wetsuits available to purchase or hire, so that everyone can get involved. We also offer individual and group swim and tri coaching.
HERCULES CHARITY FUND RAISING
Due to the challenging nature of our events they are the perfect opportunity to raise money for your chosen charity. Competitors in our 2016 events raised a staggering amount for charities all across the UK and our competitors took great pride in conquering their individual tests. One group of brothers who took part in our St Albans relay triathlon raised an incredible £17,500 for the Royal Marsden Hospital.
Hercules Events have teamed up with “Stand up to Cancer” to encourage participants of our events to raise money for this incredible cause. Please take time to read about the tireless work this charity do to accelerate the benefits of research to cancer patients and play your part by fund raising yourself. You can request a fundraising pack from here and set up your own just giving page.
Together we can make a real difference.
