On behalf of Matlock and District Swimming Club.


Just to let you know, in case you weren’t already aware, our 2018 River Swim Series starts on Thursday 21st June.

We have one evening of races each month of June, July and August at Derwent Gardens, Matlock Bath over distances of 250m, 500m and 1500m.

It’s a great chance to enjoy the convivial atmosphere of an evening’s open water swimming in a lovely location which is excellent for the swimmers and spectators.

The link to the full details is here - https://www.madswimming.org.uk/galas/event/43-open-water-series-round-1.html 

This year we have had a generous donation to the prize fund which will enable us to create some new champions by the end of the final race. The swimmers with the combined best times over the three distances – not necessarily on the same night – will be declared our “omnium” champions and there will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd men and women.

We do hope you can join us. Wetsuit hire is available (see link) and Matlock Bath offers plenty in the way of post-race recovery food – chips and mushy peas!
