Summer 22, Trifarm Sprint Tri and Intro To Tri courses

Morning All

Just a quick update on our plans for the summer season at Trifarm.

We will open for the Saturday, Sunday & Bank Holiday Monday of Easter weekend from 8:30am-11:30am.
We will then start our normal summer opening hours from Saturday 23rd April. As a reminder those hours are 8:30-11:30am on Saturday, Sunday, and Bank Holiday Mondays, and from 5pm-8pm on regular Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

Out Trifarm Sprint Triathlon will start at 8am on 22nd May 2022. One 800m lap of the lake, an 18k ride over North hill, and then a 5km run. Perfect for those of you new to triathlon and we love helping beginners start their journey in the sport. Come along, you will love it.

You can enter the race here

If you are new to the sport then why not also consider our Intro To triathlon sessions. We have expanded these to be delivered across two sessions. In your first session the legend that is Peter Bryan will walk you through all the land based elements of your race days, how to prepare, what kit you need, what to expect on the day, race rules, as well as the individual disciplines.

Your second session is your opportunity to join one of Trinswimwell’s novice, or advanced open water sessions. Places are limited to 12 per group, and we have the land based sessions available on April 23rd, May 21st, and June 4th.

Book on to the course here;

Until then feel free to come and join our winter swimming legends on alternate Saturdays and Sundays up to and including April 9th, you still have time to become a Trifarm ice Cube

Plenty of treats for those taking on the first winter swim of the season!
See you there!

No Swimming 17/10

Hi all, lake is better than last week, but still too much algae in swim lane to warrant wasting cost of test to check. Hopefully improvement will continue so we can get a swim in during October, but we are cancelling this Sunday’s session.

Stubborn Sludge

Our blue green algae is proving very stubborn and regrettably we have to cancel this weekend’s sessions.

We will do a water quality check next week to see if the cooler temperatures are persuading the algae to have a holiday so we can reopen for the 9th October Winter Swim session.

Apologies all

Trifarm closed up to and including 30/9

Afraid we are still under the influence of green ooze so no swimming this weekend/next week. We will check again next Thursday to see if the first winter swim session can go ahead on 3rd October.

Lake Closed for seven days, will review on 23/9

I am so sorry but I will have to reverse yesterday’s decision and say its a no go for swimming at the lake this weekend/next week. I just drove down to drop weekend supplies off and there is an extensive fresh bloom, much larger than the small stretch apparent on Wednesday. I will check the lake again on my way home next Thursday to see if next weekend can be saved.
So sorry everyone. I will contact everyone booked on re refunds etc.

Lake Reopens Saturday at 8:30am

The lake will reopen on Saturday at 8:30. Levels of algae in the swim lane are a long way below the limits and so we look forward to welcoming you back.

No Swimming 15/16 September

Hi all
Just been at the lake, I can still see some algae on the surface. The light conditions are not great so it is difficult to properly assess. We have a water quality test kit arriving tomorrow and will have results on Friday. I am cautiously hopeful we can open for the weekend, but no swimming Weds/Thurs this week.

Algal Bloom at Trifarm

A bloom of blue green algae emerged overnight and consequently we have cancelled the swim sessions today and tomorrow. We will check again on Tuesday to see if there is an improvement in water quality.

Apologies for the interruption to your normal swimming service!
