Cardiff Bay Try a Tri Swim 2022

After much deliberation and with a very heavy heart we have decided to postpone this event, which will now take place on the 25th of June 2022.

The postponement of this event will be a huge disappointment to everyone who has entered. This is shared by the team here at Always Aim High as well as everyone else who is involved in our events, from our charity partners, sponsors and volunteers, to the local communities whose livelihoods depend on a vibrant visitor economy.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their ongoing support; we can't wait to bring this event back in 2022, bigger and better than ever!

Cardiff Bay is supplied by two rivers to form a 500-acre (2.0 km2) freshwater lake around the former dockland area south of the City Centre. The 'bay' was formerly tidal, with access to the sea limited to a couple of hours each side of high water but now provides 24-hour access through three locks.

Swimming in the Bay is only allowed when authorised by the Harbour Authority so by taking part in this event you will join an exclusive group of Cardiff Bay swimmers!

This event has been created primarily for triathletes looking to warm up or gain open water experience; however it is open to everyone and with four different distances this event has something for all from first time open water swimmers, to experienced swimmers looking for a challenge over a longer distance.
