  2. Head to the Hadleigh Park office, where our team will greet you and request you complete our registration process (10 minutes max). If you haven’t got a wristband or HP swimming hat you will be issued one.
  3. If you have your own wetsuit we will give you the code for the changing rooms, or if you need to hire a wetsuit we can fit you to a suit.
  4. Once changed head over to the reservoir entrance (find the blue flag), we recommend wearing footwear as the entrance is stone.
