Delta-Simons Aquathon series kicks off for fourth year

Once again Delta-Simons are sponsoring the 100% Swimming’s Aquathon series held at Activities Away in South Hykeham, Lincolnshire this summer.  The Aquathon is held throughout summer with an event for Juniors (200m swim/2,000m run) and Adults (800m swim/3,000m run).

Delta-Simons provides water quality testing for the quarter mile long former gravel pit at Activities Away, a multi activity centre which also hosts canoeing, paddle boarding, jet skiing and power boating.  The water quality is measured against current bathing water regulations and always achieves the top rating of Excellent.

The first Aquathon kicks off on the evening of Wednesday 17th May, with registration open from 17:00 onwards.
