Sri Chinmoy Tri Club's GO TRI Swim-Run at Filton Pool - Sunday April 18th 2021
Filton's Aquathlon, or Swim-Run, features a 200M pool swim and a 3KM Run
About the event
***COVID UPDATE - RACE CANCELLED - although pools reopen in early April, this is for "individual swimming" only and not organised sessions or events. We have therefore decided that the April aquathlon (swim-run) cannot go ahead and we will aim to bring it back in April 2022. All entrants will be contacted about refunds***
Our Swim-Run event is part of the GO TRI series, organised in partnership between the Sri Chinmoy Tri Club (Bristol) and Triathlon England. The 200M swim takes place in Filton Leisure Centre's heated, 25M pool and the 3KM run is a loop course around Elm Park.
ENTRIES WILL ALL BE ONLINE (via British Triathlon website)
There are pics of previous Swim Runs in our race gallery. Like all GO TRI events, the Sri Chinmoy Tri Club's GO TRI Filton Swim Run is beginner-friendly - you can swim any stroke (except backstroke) to complete the 8-length course and the run distance is a very achievable 3KM!

2019 Apr 21stGO TRI Filton Swim-Run Results 2019
Further to some adjustments and corrections, here are the provisional results from the Swim-Run at Filton on Easter Sunday 2019. 30 athletes took part in warm, sunny conditions that helped everyone dry out quickly on the run but perhaps felt a bit too hot on the final lap of Elm Park!
In the women's race the first three finishers were separated by only 18 seconds, with the win going to Lucy Gardner in a time of exactly 20 minutes zero seconds. Second place was Sarah Gillies in 20.14 with third place Joanne Taylor in 20.18.
Our winner in the men's race was Simon Waters in an excellent time of 16.41, with Richard Phillips (17.58) and Wayne Williams (18.23) in second and third place respectively.
As well as the trophies for the winners, medals were awarded to our fastest 50+ veterans, Sarah Gillies and Richard Phillips.
Although our usual race photographer was out of town, we do have some photos of the run and a few from the swim which we'll upload soon to: https://ukgallery.srichinmoyraces.org/Bristol
Our next race is the 2 mile run in Eastville Park on 14th May, our next multi-sport event is the Try-a-Tri / Sprint Triathlon on May 26th at Portishead Open Air Pool. See you there!
