Open water swim sessions are back for 2017 at the stunning Merchant Taylors private lake. Our season will run from 22nd April – 10th September and we do hope that you will all join us for a dip at this fantastic venue. We will be holding our usual 3 weekly sessions of Wednesday 18:30 - 20:30 and Saturday & Sunday mornings at 06:30 - 08:30.
Not only do you have the three sessions to choose from, but we have excellent changing and shower facilities, wetsuit hire and purchase available, individual and group coaching and there will be the all important hot drink or evening bar for you to warm yourselves up after afterwards.
We look forward to welcoming you at a session soon!
The loop will be 750m with a turn around points at approximately 200m and 500m so everyone can join in! We will have a full water safety crew on hand to support you in the water as well as the Hercules Team who are always available to offer tips and advice. If you feel you would like to brush up on your open water skills we have our very own highly qualified coaches for one to one or group lessons.

Struck by the absence of local events, Hercules Events was founded in 2011 by a small group of sports enthusiasts who were determined to develop triathlon and multi-sports in Hertfordshire.
We pride ourselves on developing strong relationships with local sports clubs and youth groups, who contribute to our events by providing marshals. We also strongly promote charitable giving and work closely with our charity partner, Cancer Research, raising thousands of pounds for charity each year.
We have built a strong reputation for quality and personal attention to our competitors. To us our participants are not customers but valued friends who are helping us to make sports accessible to everyone regardless of their ability.
