Driffield Tri - Swim Swim 400 metres

Driffield Triathlon

Returning once again to Driffield for the 13th year of the Driffield Triathlon. Kicking off your triathlon with a 400 metre swim, in the modern Driffield swimming pool.

In order to make it as fair as we can, we ask for your estimated swim time for 400 metres when completing your entry form. This allows us to allocate you a swim wave, starting with other triathletes of a similar ability to yourself. Not only does it make it fair but it also reduces any anxiety some of you may have. There will be a maximum of 4 swimmers per lane, this gives you plenty of space and allows you to focus on achieving the best swim you can.
