Safety Kayakers StaffordshireIRONMAN Staffordshire is coming back to Chasewater Country Park on Sunday 18th July
IRONMAN Staffordshire is coming back to Chasewater Country Park in just a few weeks’ time (Sun 18th July) and we’re currently recruiting the last few safety kayakers to join our water safety team for the event.
We’re recruiting a team of 40 safety kayakers to support the races on the morning of Sunday 18th July. The role of the safety kayaker is to supervise the participants as they complete the 1.9km open water swim, in Chasewater Country Park.
We do ask that kayakers are of a suitable standard to carry out the role, ideally meeting the following criteria:
- Minimum of 16 years of age
- Competent paddler – of at least 2 star standard
- Able to provide your own boat & kit
- If you hold one of the qualifications listed here it would be an advantage
IRONMAN Staffordshire is an early start, but the nice thing about the swim is that it’s the first discipline and so it’s also finished first. Please find below some outline information about the event:
