  • Neither glass or barbeques are permitted at the lake
  • Children must be supervised by parents at all times and kept away from the water.
  • All swimmers take part knowing that they take full responsibility for their actions, have satisfied themselves of their fitness, have taken all reasonable steps to prepare for the challenge and understand that neither the organisers nor anyone connected with the event, accept responsibility for the swimmers health and well-being, before, during or after the event. The organisers will however, take all reasonable risk factors into account in order to maintain a well-run and safe environment for you to undertake the event.
  • Numbers in the 26.2 hour challenge are strictly limited.

Event – Swimmers will be provided with;

  • Changing rooms
  • Toilet facilities & showers
  • Hot drinks
  • Hot water for hot water bottles
  • Water safety & First aid
  • Event T shirt & completion certificate

*Per Solo OR Pair we will include in your entry fee one hot drink per hour for every swimmer – separate food packages will be available to purchase from the venue.

In the event of the swim being cancelled due to poor weather conditions or other incidents that are beyond the control of the SYS team, SYS will endeavour to re-arrange the swim at another time in the year*.

Once a swim has been booked no refunds will be available, but your place may be transferable to another swimmer who meets all the SYS swim criteria.

If you have to relinquish your place please contact us immediately on info@swimyourswim.com

Your place on the swim will not be confirmed until full payment is received by SYS.  Should you be unable to make the full payment for the swim your place may be offered to someone else.

*SYS will do their VERY best to re-run events that have to be called off for these reasons but there is no guarantee that this can be achieved within the same year.  We would hate for an event/swim to be completely cancelled, but think it best that you know there is a chance of this happening from the outset.  Refunds in this instance would be at the discretion of the SYS team.  For more information please email us on info@swimyourswim.com

We are sorry but registration for this event is now closed.

Please contact us if you would like to know if spaces are still available.
