FAQs >>>
- What events are included in the listings?
We currently include Open Water Swim Events in the UK mainland (England including the Isle of Wight, Scotland & Wales), Ireland (ROI & Northern Ireland) and the Isle of Man. We don't usually include anything taking place in a pool (even an open air pool), nor do we include Triathlons or Aquathlons. If you find an event that does not meet the above criteria then just treat it as a Brucie Bonus but do not assume that we have extended our coverage.
- Why can I not see any past events?
For performance reasons the app only holds and shows details of future events. Events continue to be shown for a couple of days after they have taken place and are then dropped from the listings. If you need to access details about past events then we suggest that you use our website.
The app will only attempt to download a new file if it detects that the version on the Interweb is newer than the file on your device.
- Why am I not seeing any events?
Firstly, the app will need network access to download a file from the Interweb that it will store on your device. It is only a small file.
The app will only attempt to download a new file if it detects that the version on the Interweb is newer than the file on your device.
It is possible (but we hope unlikely) that the file could be incomplete which would not allow the app to show any events. In which case you will need to wait for the device to download a new file. Please
- What should I do if I spot an error or omission in the listings?
If you would like us to add an event, then please submit it using the form on our Events page. If you believe an entry is incorrect then please
- Is there a version for iPhone or iPad?
Unfortunately we don't have the technical resources to develop a version for Apple devices.
