SWIM THE CHANNEL UP NORTH CHALLENGE (36km)

ENTRY COST:
£170.00 - Solo Swimmers. £320.00 - Adult Teams. £170.00 - U16 Teams
 

For the last six years this fantastic swim endurance event has attracted solo swimmers andteams of between two and six swimmers who want the challenge of swimming the distance equivalent of the English Channel which is twenty one miles all in the relative comfort and safety of a lovely English lake.

Many of the individuals and teams are already committed to doing challenges such as the English Channel with Uswim and want to replicate the experience of swimming in tandem for up to sixteen hours or so. Many just do it for the crazy nature of the challenge! 

Team swimmers are required to complete equal distances and swim in a designated team order. Prior to the swim start teams must select either the 1.5km or 3km distance to complete each time someone swims. If a swimmer drops out during the challenge due to injury, lack of gumption etc, the team can continue until the 36km distance is completed although the team won't be officially placed :(
