From Lichfield – head north on the A515 towards Kings Bromley/Ashbourne. At Seedy Mill turn left onto the B5014 towards Handsacre. In Handsacre turn right onto the A513/B5014 to Abbots Bromley/Uttoxeter (alternatively, stay on the A515 at Seedy Mill, turn left onto the A513 just before Kings Bromley then right onto the B5014 to Abbots Bromley). On entering Abbots Bromley go round a left bend by the Coach & Horses pub and the entry to the pool is on the left just before the zebra crossing.

From Rugeley – leave Rugeley on the B5103 (under the railway bridge by the Yorkshireman pub). Follow the road over Blithfield reservoir and, at the end, turn right for Abbots Bromley. Go through the village and over the zebra crossing. The pool entrance is on the right immediately after the crossing.

NB. The pool is on the opposite side of the road to the main school buildings.

Burntwood Aquathlon cancelled

Unfortunately due to heavy snow overnight we have cancelled today’s race.
We have fought hard to keep the race going and thank you to everyone who has supported us but, with more heavy snow now forecast this morning, it just isn’t safe.
We will be in touch with all entrants in the next couple of days; meanwhile, stay warm and stay safe!

Burntwood Aquathlon – final start times

The final start times for Sunday’s race are available here. There have been a few changes to race numbers and a few people have moved one wave since the provisional list was published so please check

The race will still be running so long as the pool is open and we can get there! The forecast is better for tomorrow than today but it will still be cold so bring some extra layers + hat and gloves!

If anything disastrous happens with the weather overnight all entrants will be emailed and a notice posted on this website and our Facebook page before 7am.

On Friday 23rd March we will be running a land based (ie. not in the pool) swim technique session. The session will be led by Russ Hall who does our swim filming and will cover good swim technique plus common faults and how to correct them.

There will be no Club sessions between in Christmas week or New Year week except the Thursday swim at Abbots Bromley which will be running uninterrupted throughout. So, if you feel a need to get out of the house and do some exercise after the Christmas festivities, join us at Abbots Bromley pool on Thursday 28th December (and Thursday 4th Jan) 7.30pm. If there is any change to this I will email our members and post on our Facebook page as soon as I know.

Happy Christmas!
