Europe’s leading and award-winning triathlon brand, Zone3 has been announced as the official partner for the 2019 Zone3 Victory Swims, in support of the Felix Fund. The Felix Fund is a charity that supports bomb disposal and search personnel and their families with financial assistance and welfare support.
The Zone3 Victory Swims are part of the Captain James Wadsworth Challenges, where participants push themselves to their limits through swimming, running and cycling endurance events. The swimming challenges consist of an epic swim across the English Channel in September, which will be completed by solo swimmers and relay teams alike, and an exhilarating open water swim.
Zone3 is one of the most successful triathlon brands, continuously achieving the highest industry reviews based on speed, comfort and innovation. The brand was built by athletes and for athletes right from the very start, creating products that are ideally suited for beginners, all the way through to professional triathletes and open water swimmers. The key to Zone3’s success lies in sports technology, lab testing, listening to customers and using their feedback to innovate and further improve each product.
Zone3 are providing award-winning and high performance swimming products for participants of Zone3 Victory Swims and exclusive promotions for supporters of the events.

Beforehand, the Zone3 Victory Swim The Lake takes place on Thursday 5th September at Waterland Outdoor Pursuits near Cirencester, Gloucestershire. Participants will swim 400m, 700m, 1500m or further if they want more of a challenge!
Event co-ordinator at Zone3, Adelaide Goodeve said: “We are delighted to be the official partner of these amazingly worthy challenges. We will be supporting swimmers throughout their training with top advice from our ambassadors, providing participants with vital kit and promotions for supporters of the charity and challenges.”
Previously just called the Victory Swim, the event is the brainchild of Capt. James Wadsworth CGC. He said: “It is just incredible to have such a prestigious brand on board for this event. Having the support of such an influential and established organisation means the world to us.”
Capt. Wadsworth joined the army in 1995 and worked in the Explosive Ordnance Display (OED) unit and completed tours of Northern Ireland, Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2008, he was awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross. Later this year, Capt. Wadsworth will receive an MBE in recognition of both his role in the military and his charitable work.
The Felix Fund provides both tailored welfare support and financial help. It also focuses on mental health issue and work to prevent stress.
