Aqua Sphere sponsors SwimRutland

As part of its commitment to encourage more people to enjoy open water swimming, active swim specialist Aqua Sphere is sponsoringof SwimRutland, which takes place every Summer on Rutland Water, one of Europe’s largest and most beautiful man-made lakes.

Now in its fourth year, SwimRutland has grown year on year into a highly regarded outdoor event and the organizers have been commended for their focus on the safety and wellbeing of all swimmers as well as their dedication to ensuring that people of all ages and swimming abilities take on and enjoy a new open water challenge.

Taking place on August 12, there are four distances available to suit the abilities of all swimmers – from the 500m Mini course for juniors or novices through to the 8km long distance SwimRutland course for the more confident and experienced swimmer. Wet suits are compulsory and swim floats are supplied to ensure the excellent visibility and safety of every swimmer.

The man behind SwimRutland, IRONMAN athlete Paul Cowling, said: “It is significant that a quality equipment brand such as Aqua Sphere has stepped forward to support our event and help us to reach out to more participants so they can experience the joys of swimming outdoors. Aqua Sphere is fully committed to and passionate about swimming and I would highly recommend their curved lens goggles which have won awards for their panoramic vision and comfort – ideal in fact for open water swimming – and their wet suits which deliver excellent warmth, buoyancy and flexibility.

“All participants are encouraged to check out to ensure they have the best possible kit to help them get the most enjoyment out of their swimming. Who needs itchy or leaky goggles for a start? The right kit is essential.”
