Event Details

Coniston Water is a beautiful lake set in the stunning scenery of the fells where you can join this popular event. Test yourself to swim the 5.25 miles in the sweet tasting clear water that was so loved by Arthur Ransome and his children of ‘Swallows and Amazons’.


Entries Open 1st October 2020




Kayak Support

Swimmers must have a kayak escorting them for this event. You will need to bring your own, however we may be able to provide a small number of kayakers for an additional fee.

The event

The course goes from Water Park at the southern end of Coniston Water and you swim until you run out of water, finishing at Monk Coniston at the northern end of the lake.

Please note that we are not allowed to park at Water Park – but you can drop off kayaks in advance. This is why we allow so much time between the briefing and the start (see below). You WILL have time to organise all of the logistical requirements, so all swimmers and kayakers MUST attend the briefing.

This swim is open to all but priority will be given to BLDSA members.


Time   – 8:30am registration; 9:30am briefing; 12noon swim start

The presentation will be on the beach as soon as possible after the last swimmer has finished.
