Organiser's Description

Towards the end of the summer swimming season every year we host a marvelous day of measured and timed open water swims at the beautiful Fritton lake. Situated within the Somerleyton Estate this is the ideal way to celebrate a summer of open water. With a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and three distances to choose from, ranging from 1500m to 5km, there is an event for everyone whether it's your first open water event or you're a seasoned open water swimmer. Can’t choose? Why not make a day of it and swim all three? With prizes for the top 3 swimmers taking on all events and a special package where you get entries to all 3 events for the price of 2 there’s every reason to take on this challenge! Whatever your choice it’s always a fun and relaxed way to finish a Summer of swimming.
