Aquathlon (swim/run) events take place at Guildford Lido during the summer season. Organised by Guildford’s Phoenix Triathlon Club, the swim takes place at the Lido, with the run element of the event taking athletes around the scenic Stoke Park nearby.

A Triathlon England sanctioned event, the Phoenix Aquathlon events will see adults complete a 500m swim followed by a 5km run, whilst children from 8 to 14 years will complete distances appropriate to their age.


The races on all four dates are identical so it's a great way to compare your times for each race and see how your fitness improves throughout the season! We welcome entrants of all abilities and we really hope you'll come along for an evening of fun and friendly racing.
