Coniston Epic Lakes Swim, 19th August 2018

 
How do I enter?


The Coniston Epic Lakes Swim is event 3 of the Epic Lakes Open Water Swim Series. It takes place from the Bluebird Cafe, in Coniston and is the final event of the Epic Lakes Swim Trilogy. 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!
