Sean Wylie reports from the National Age Group Open Water Swimming Championships

The National Age Group Open Water Swimming Championships were held in Rother Valley country park on the outskirts of Sheffield on Monday 30 July and included races for those aged 12 years and upwards. The race distances varied between categories with ages 12 and 13 years racing over 2km, 14 and 15 years racing over 3km and 16 and above racing over the 5km distance.

About Outdoor Swimmer

A growing number of endurance athletes are swimming for good rather than glory. Perhaps the most prominent of these is Lewis Pugh, UN Patron of the Oceans. We were privileged to join him on a leg of his Long Swim of the length of the English Channel, which he is undertaking to raise awareness of the plastic in our oceans. Elsewhere in the magazine we bust some more technique myths, visit the Galapagos Islands and the Peak District, test the latest outdoor gear for swimming adventures and meet the writers of best-selling book The Salt Path.
