River Arun 3.8k Swim 2017

River Arun 3.8k Swim 2017

Information and registration

24 June 2017


2017 will be the 9th time the event has taken place and another unique chance to swim the River Arun over the classic Ironman distance of 3.8km from Ford to Littlehampton. Fast times are guaranteed, just ask last year's competitors – so many PBs!

The River Arun runs from Littlehampton and northwards beyond Arundel and Pulborough, West Sussex. The Arun has the second fastest tidal river in the UK so you're guaranteed a Personal Best! All the usual REP safety cover will be provided including the Harbour Master's launch, pilot boat, safety RIBS, kayaks and spotters on the river bank.

Event details

The start will be just before high tide during the 30 minute slack water period, before the tide starts to turn.

THE START TIME FOR 2017 WILL BE 12:45hrs FROM FORD MARINA. Coaches will leave the RNLI at Littlehampton from 11:40hrs to take competitors to the holding point at Ford Church.

Registration will take place close to the RNLI Station in Surrey Street, Littlehampton, West Sussex, BN17 3BL between 09:30 and 11:25hrs. This is also where the swim finishes. Please leave plenty of time to park as the town and quay will be busy – there are numerous car parks in and around the town.

We suggest you initially aim to park at Coastguard Road (BN17 5LH), which is the close to the Harbour Park Amusements. From here it's only a short walk to the RNLI; just follow the river upstream and it's a much easier location to depart from. Collect your swim cap and bag for your kit and familiarise yourself with the course maps. You will also need to have your race number written on your hand.
