Fritton Lake 10km Marathon Swim Challenge

19 Aug 2018

A new event for 2018, set in the stunning beauty of Fritton Lake!

You can take on this challenge as an individual, as a pair or as a team of up to 5 or 10 swimmers. The choice is yours!

Swimming 1000m and then making an 'Aussie exit' you decide how to approach the challenge. Will you take it easy and enjoy a brief rest from swimming whilst enjoying the spectator support?  Or, will you run straight through and plunge into the water for your next lap? Pairs and teams will pass 'the baton' (timing chip) on the short run between laps. 

Whether you're looking to complete an individual 10km or want the fun and enjoyment of competing as a team this is the challenge for you. First time marathon swimmers can enjoy a brief break from swimming every 1000m with the opportunity to refuel whilst seasoned swimmers and triathletes can enjoy the opportunity to practice their 'Aussie Exit's'

Teams, you decide your swimming order, all we ask is that you complete the 10km by event closure.

Chip timed with medals for all entrants. Swim hats provided.

-Individuals (minimum age 16)*
