Ullswater Epic Lakes Swim, 3rd June 2018

 
How do I enter?

The Ullswater Epic Lakes Swim is event 1 of the Epic Lakes Open Water Swim Series. It takes place from Jenkins Field, in Glenridding, Patterdale and it is a celebration of being British. You can choose either the 500m, the 1 mile or the 'Iron' 3.8k distances, depending upon your age and ability. On the day, we will be hosting our annual village fete, which will include cake stalls, bat the rat, a coconut shy and a bouncy castle. There will also be a host of other sporting activities such as egg and spoon race and welly wanging. Bring the family, bring a picnic and have an EPIC day out in the Lake District.
