The Great Lake District Swim Challenge 2017 – Swim ALL the Lake District in the ultimate open water challenge
The Lake District is England’s largest national park and a world-class swimming destination, now in its third year, the Great Lake District Swim Challenge is to swim all the swim-able Lakes in the Lake District.
The challenge is split into 2 trips:
- The Great Lake District Swim Challenge West covers the western Lakes and 7 Lakes or meres in 2 days
- The Great Lake District Swim Challenge East covers the eastern Lakes and 8 Lakes in 2 days.
Each is a non-stop action packed trip where swimmers will cross a width, or two of each of the swim-able lakes before moving onto the next lake by chartered mini-bus.
“It was the most amazing trip ever and I am still buzzing. You all do a fabulous job and made the trip what it was. It was great to be with such wonderful people and to laugh so much.
Thanks again for a brilliant time.” Helen
