Evolve Open Water Swim Series 2018

Test yourself in the open water with this pure and simple timed swim series! Raced over 2000m, everyone can test themselves against the clock or race for prizes at the Evolve Open Water Swim Series. Swimmers who complete in at least 3 events will race for the title of Open Water Swim Series Champion. New for 2018 is a team relay competition made up of teams of 4 with each swimmer completing one 500m lap.

Any 3 events can count and if you enter all 4 rounds your best 3 results will count.

The swim is held over a 500m course which swimmers will complete 4 laps to complete their race distance. At the end of each lap swimmers will exit the water to complete an "Aussie Exit" before re-entering to start the next lap. This will allow for relay teams to "pass the baton (timing chip)" and for solo swimmers to soak up the applause from the spectators! The event will be chip timed.


Points will be awarded based on your finish position. Points will be totalled and the swimmer or team with the highest cumulative points in each category will be awarded series winners.

The Home of our event is the idyllic Blue Lagoon in the heart of Yorkshire. The Blue Lagoon is the only dedicated Open Water Swim Venue in Yorkshire and one of the best, due to its clarity & lack of weed! Nestled in 32 acres of woodland, meadow, scrubland and of course aquatic areas with a plethora of wildlife it truly is an amazing place. The Blue Lagoon has been continually developed over the past 10 years and boasts a beautiful beach entry.
