Our 750 metre option is the ideal distance for those just starting out in the world of wild swimming and is a single lap that leads you out toward Derwent Island returning towards land. Open to ages 12+.

Our 1500 metre option is great for the more experienced open water swimmer and is one lap of Derwent Island. Ages 18+ only.

Greener feed stations:

Disposable cups are a source of waste so we're keeping their use to a minimum. There will be no cups at the feed stations so please bring a re-usable foldable ‘soft cup’ or drinks bottle. You will need to carry this with you and use it on the course if you wish to use feed stations. Foldable soft cups will be available to buy in Sports Registration on the day if you need one.

You will enter the entrants details at checkout.

Raise money for The National Trust

We are offering all competitors the chance to fly the flag for conservation & raise money for vital work to protect mountain rivers.
