Taking place at the National Diving and Activity Centre over 20 & 21 July, it presents a fun and exciting sport for both competitors and spectators to come and enjoy. With competitors split into adult and under-16s categories, it involves donning a wetsuit, flippers and a snorkel and completing two lengths of a boggy trench. The person to do so in the quickest time will be named as the winner.
