Welcome to the support page for the Prestwick Aquathon races.

At Prestwick Aquathon we aim to keep things old school, including the race entry fee. Striking a balance between a laid back relaxed atmosphere and a serious competition. Young athletes repeatedly say that “it’s their favourite aquathon,” whilst parents say “It’s very well run”. We like to think it just runs like clockwork.

The swim is within Prestwick Swimming Pool, transition just outside the pool and the run is around the surrounding parkland. It’s ideal for an aquathon. Yes, we have had bad weather, but over the years, the sun usually smiles on us.

It gets even better though, because once you have done that, you can come back in the autumn to do it again!
