List of UK open water races under FINA regulations

FINA rules – the ones they use for the Olympic Marathon Swim – are not to everyone’s liking as they prohibit the use of wetsuits. But for those who prefer to swim without neoprene and compete against other non-wetsuit swimmers here’s a selection of events organised by the Amateur Swimming Association (ASA) and its Scottish counterpart, the SASA.

The event list has been compiled by Les Debenham, the Chairman of ASA South West Region Open Water Swimming, who also organisers an ASA 10k race in Weymouth.
A number of the events (including the Weymouth swim) also feature a “wetsuit” category for those who aren’t yet ready to shed the neoprene.

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
