National Open Water Swimming Ranking Series
H2Open Magazine has teamed up with seven event organisers around the country. You swim as many of the series races as you like, and the results of your best four races count towards your end of year ranking.
Age group series winners will walk away with a Dryrobe Advance worth £90. There are runners-up prizes too, of Torq nutrition products, as well as random spot prizes, so even if you’re not fast you could still end up a winner.
