We are very excited to announce the initial line up for the 2015 Elivar Open Water Swim Series.

Together with Vigour Events – our Scottish event partner from 2014, we are delighted to welcome a new addition for 2015 – the Mad Hatter Velotive Series Events in Cornwall.

The Elivar Open Water Swim Series runs across England, Scotland and Ireland and we are thrilled now to extend into this fantastic series of events in Cornwall run by the Mad Hatters,” says Len Dunne, co-founder of Elivar. “Elivar is the only sports nutrition brand exclusively designed for those of us who are over 35 but refuse to accept that as a reason not to push our boundaries through sport. We’re looking forward to providing recovery product for the swimmers at these events.

We are delighted to be working with the Elivar brand” says John Yelland of Mad Hatter Sports Events. “This is another great partnership for Mad Hatter and we believe it’s an ideal product to showcase at our Velotive Swim Series this summer in Cornwall.

Robert Hamilton, Director at Vigour Events added, “We’re thrilled to be working with Elivar again in 2015, particularly as we are seeing more and more 35+ participants enter into our series of swim events.” Watch Vigour’s video from 2014:

The Calendar of Events for the 2015 Series is set out below – its worth checking back from time to time as we add more event across the UK and Ireland.
