Swim 'The Channel Up North' Challenge
Boundary Water Park, Cheshire, CW4 8HT
Saturday 15th June, 2024, Start 8.00pm
'Swim The Channel Up North' offers soloists and relays the chance to swim the 36km length of the English Channel continuously. For potential English Channel swimmers its an event that provides a clear idea on the time it will take to swim the English Channel proper.
For the last eight years this tough endurance event has attracted solo swimmers and teams who want the challenge of swimming the distance equivalent of the English Channel or to swim a mile every hour for 12 hours in the relative comfort of an English lake.
Many of the individuals and teams are already committed to challenges such as the English Channel and want to replicate the experience of long distance swimming. Many just do it for the crazy nature of the challenge!
In the 'Channel Up North' relay 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.
