Been Talking to Dave Q and Karen about this, this is yet to be confirmed, but I believe this will be happening on a Sat Morning sometime in the next 2-3 weeks. When I know more, I'll make sure to advertise the fact.
Latest news from Dave Q - first wave starts at 7:30am
"Could you please urgently inform MTC'ers that the first one hour swim (of two planned that morning) will start at 7.30am at Moss Side. Come early and swim or count laps!
"Man Tri has a long (since 2003) and proud record of achievement in this competition so the more people to give it a 100% effort, set new personal bests and get in most excellent shape for the new tri season the better!"
