From Steve:
“Dear Fellow Spencer Swimmer​​​​​​,
I am delighted to provide further detail regarding the inaugural Spencer Open Water 1500m championship!
It is a race, but it will also be a great day out, with scenery, spectacle, food and drink.
To be held in Oxford in the Thames, start time 11am on Sunday 1st September 2019, this is a straight 1500 m river race. The club will be making awards by 5-year age categories.
We will follow the race with fabulous coffee and cake, other beverages are available.
After that we will meet for a picnic lunch on the banks of the river and whatever river dips take your fancy.
This is really a fantastic addition to the Spencer calendar and your committee and coach hope for an excellent turn out on the day.
