Team South West Swim

We trialled team entries on the Cotswold Big Swim 2 in 2015 and our athletes loved it.  Our “South West Swim Open Water Coaching” team is expanding in 2016 and we would love to have you on board at events.

So far we have a team travelling to the Henley Bridge to Bridge Marathon swim in August, and will also be running teams at the Tri Ferris Cotswold Big Swim 1 and 2 during the 2016 season (entries open January 2016).  Look out for competitions, special training days (for Henley) and offers as rewards for entering in our team.

Our teams are not just for the super speedy, we would love to have you signed up regardless of your swim level.  We support and share in the achievements of our athletes at all stages of their swim journey.  To note, bridge to bridge may not be suitable for newer swimmers as it is a distance event.

All our team events and links to entry can be found below:

113events – ‘The South West Swim 226 Swim’ (1.9km or 3.8km). 

Firstly we are very proud to be one of the sponsors of this brand, spanking new Cotswold 226 Weekend run by the amazing team at  113 Events and held in conjunction with the popular Cotswold226 long distance Tri in July.
The South West Swim 226 Swim (as it is now known) will take place on Saturday 16th July with distances of either 1.9km or 3.8km and we will be onsite with the coaching & retail tent for all your support on the day. South West Swim will be entering teams for both distances and have some very special discount codes ready and waiting for our swimmers (email: stating distance you are entering)

The Henley Swim Bridge to Bridge Event (14.1km).
So far 18 South West Swimmers are stepping up to the plate for this event. A fantastic swim loch to loch down the Thames.

To sign up for the event at and be sure to enter your team name as ‘South West Swim’. If you have already entered and want to join the team then please drop me an email to and I will send you over an invitation to join the fun.

Due to the distance of this swim I would recommend this event to the more experienced swimmers with us.  There is no official cutoff time but Henley say around 6 hours for completion is a good marker point.

Sponsored Event – The Royal Wooten Basset ASE Triathlon.
We are pleased to say that this event is full, well done to the team at ASE.  We will see you there with the coaching & Retail Tent.
