Open Water Update - Phoenix Sprint Triathlon

Official Statement

Ragley Open Water Swimming 2018

It is with great regret that we have had to postpone the start of the Open Water Swimming Season at Ragley Hall.

As it stands the water temperature has risen to acceptable tolerances, however, two separate water tests have revealed unusually high concentrations of blue green algae in the water.

We are working in partnership with the land owners to find a workable solution so that we can return to normal at the earliest possible opportunity.

Unfortunately, due to the proximity of the RLSS UK Open Water Festival/Phoenix Triathlon, we have made a difficult decision to cancel these events.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused, but felt on balance that an early announcement will allow competitors to make alternative arrangements.

Organisers for the Open Water Festival and the Phoenix Triathlon will be making contact with all registered competitors to update on the next steps.

* There may be possibilities to host the event later in the season, at which time it will be re-advertised.
