Epic Lakes Swim Coniston 2020

16 August 2020

The Coniston Epic Lakes Swim is event 3 of the Epic Lakes Open Water Swim Series. It takes place near the Bluebird Cafe, in Coniston. You can choose either the 500m, the 1 mile or the 'iron' 3.8k distances, depending upon your age and ability. Coniston provides yet another fantastic venue, with stunning views and it’s a great family day out. Visit the famous Bluebird Cafe or take a ride on the Steam Gondola. Coniston is of course famous for Donald Campbell’s speed record, but you can take things a bit more leisurely and enjoy the surroundings. It’s going to be another EPIC day of swimming, come and join us!

What do I need to enter

There will be the option when entering the mile or the 3.8k races to swim without a wetsuit (skin swimmer). You must have previous event experience of swimming without a wetsuit which must be provided at the point of entry. Tow floats will be compulsory for all skin swimmers. For all other competitors wetsuits are compulsory. Shortie type wetsuits are allowed if you are an experienced swimmer but we recommend full length arms and legs due to the cold temperatures. If you are susceptible to the cold, we would also recommend neoprene hats, socks and gloves. The minimum age for competitors is 11/14/17 for the 500m/1m/3.8k on the day of the event.

How much to enter

The cost to enter the 500m/1mile/3.8k is £20/25/29. Entries will close either at 12noon on the Friday prior to the event or when the event fills, whichever occurs first.
