Silvermine run and wetsuit trial with Xterra Wetsuits

Open water swimming

After an amazing 6km trail run in and around the Silvermine dam, we had a wetsuit trial for the beginners with Xterra Wetsuits. Each athlete got a brand new Xterra wetsuit to try out in the dam. The advantage of the wetsuit is vast. Not only does it keep you warmer, but it also aids the buoyancy of your body too. However, you must practice a few times in your new suit, as initially they can feel quite constricting.  This is a feeling you must get used to prior to race day, though the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages, so don’t be afraid to try swimming in one!
