Derwent Epic Swim 2020

Derwentwater Epic Swim 2017

Date TBC

The Epic Lakes Swim Series consists of 3 open water swim events at 3 different locations in Cumbria. Derwentwater, Coniston Water, and Ullswater. The scenery for each is absolutely breathtaking.

Derwentwater is the opening event of a series of Epic Lakes Swims.

There are 3 event distances to choose from which provides novices, intermediates and elite swimmers with a challenge to match.

1. 500m – great for first timers or those people finding their feet. This distance is also great for youngsters who wish to sample open water and gain experience.

2. 1600m – ‘The Classic Mile’ is our most popular event, it’s a great challenge for swimmers of all ability levels and always proves to be a closely contested event!

3. 3.8K – This event exists as it’s the official distance for ‘Ironman’ triathlon events and provides triathlon competitors with an opportunity to cover the distance in a realistic race setting. Aside from Ironman triathlon competitors it’s also a great challenge for long distance swimmers.
