The rescheduled 2023 swim in 2024 for our Swim Coniston event is now confirmed, we are happy to announce that there is also a limited number of additional spaces for new swimmers to join us. So if you are free on the 14th of July get booked on.
Event Info –
Coniston is third largest lake in the Lake District in the North of England. The lake is famous for the children’s novel Swallows and Amazons, which is set around Peel Island, and also as the location for the Water-speed record attempts by Donald Campbell.
The swim will start on Sunday morning, 14th of July 2024, from the beach near to the Brown Howe car park (on the south west shore of the lake), with entrants swimming across the lake, towards Peel Island, and then following the eastern shore, finishing at the north of the lake near Coniston village. The swim will be approximately 8km in length – 5.25miles.
Swimyourswim operate these swims as ‘challenges’ rather than ‘races’ and accordingly have a long track-record of providing excellent safe events. Core to the safety of the event are the ‘swim-pods’ that each swimmer is allocated to – small groups of swimmers (of similar ability and speeds) that can support each other to successfully complete the swim. Swimmers will be need to provide their average mile swim time in order to be allocated a relevant ‘swim pod’. The team from Swimyourswim will be providing full safety support on the day.
We look forward to seeing you lakeside, if you were registered in 2023 you have automatically been transferred.
