SwimRun Fritton Lake - Autumn Edition
07 Oct 18
SwimRun Fritton Lake is returning TWICE in 2018 after a sold out and very successful inaugural 2017 event. This Autumn edition is truer to the original Swedish style Ötillo event as it embraces the cooler air and water as the seasons start to turn and the days shorten. Teamwork, mud and the majestic colours of Autumn are the order of the day as you plunge into the beautiful Fritton Lake and run trails through the privately owned Somerleyton Estate. A rare opportunity to experience the pristine woodlands and beautiful water in areas not normally accessible to the public. Just a small twist from the Summer edition, you'll be racing the same course in the opposite direction!
In teams of two you will complete a 10km course comprised of 6 run sections and 5 swims. Each leg offering stunning views and varied terrain. Always within 10m of your team mate on the swim and 100m on the run you will share the experience, the fun, the beauty and the suffering as you race the pre-marked course alternating between running and swimming.
Running in your wetsuit/swimming kit and swimming in your trainers you will travel through beautiful unspoilt surroundings immersed (literally!) in nature.
The route totals approximately 1800m of open water swimming, entering and exiting at various locations along the lake. Together with approximately 8.2 km of mixed terrain running you will explore both sides of the lake and cross the Norfolk/Suffolk boundary many times.
Start time 13:00 Sunday 7th October
Finishers medal. Prizes to top 3 female teams, top 3 male teams and top 3 mixed teams.
Minimum age 18 as of 31:12:18 applies to both team members.
