We can but dream…add these to your triathlon outdoor swimming wish list…
The San Alfonso del Mar, Chile
This private water resort in Chile is 1km long, still quite a few laps for an Ironman distance swim but we wouldn’t complain!
This has got to be the most amazing lap pool over at over 3km per length. Bit of a pain if your coach has given you a kicking drill for one length, eh?
Chamonix, our hearts like in this gorgeous mountain town in the Alps where we hold our once a year Run Wild Trail and Yoga retreat. Not just because of the trails, run track and mountain air but this amazing 50 metre open air pool.
Kitsilano, Vancouver, Canada
A beautiful pool but perhaps only for winter swimming because it’s heated. At 137 metres, it’s also a salt water pool so great training for an open water sea triathlon. For more details visit Kitsilano
Bude Sea Pool, Cornwall, United Kingdom
This pool is a semi-natural amenity, and at 91 metres long and 45 metres wide, pretty damn lovely for some triathlon training. Managed by the local charity of the Friends of Bude Sea Pool, this venue is free and visited by thousands of people every year. On our list!
