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.
