There is no doubt that the growth of triathlon and swimming has lead to more of us wanting to have a go at open water swimming, but for so many people it takes a lot of courage to jump in open water.

That is where the team at Be Endurance can help you overcome the fears and have a successful experience. Maybe you are already a competent swimmer and looking for improvement in speed and racing skills, our coaches can help take you to that next level as they have done with over 1,000 swimmers in the past.

How do the sessions work?

We offer 2 coached groups that differ in ability. We have an ‘Improvers’ group for those wanting to learn the techniques of open water swimming and build confidence, and we offer a ‘Fitness’ group for the more competent swimmer that want to focus on racing skills and getting faster.

Our open water swimming sessions are held at:
WEDNESDAY – Herts Young Mariners Base, 231 Windmill Lane, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, EN8 9AJ
SATURDAY – Redricks Lakes, Redricks Lane, Sawbridgeworth, Herts, CM12 0RL

Both locations offer:

• Easy access to the water
• Male/female changing rooms
• Toilets
• Café facilities
 • Ample car parking

Wednesdays – Herts Young Mariners Base at 7:00pm – 8:00pm

Saturdays – Redricks Lakes at 8:30am – 9:30am

We begin our season of swimming on 5th May and continue until late September
