RegisterSummer Starlight Swim – Friday August 28th

The Summer Solstice Starlight Swim has been rescheduled to the 28th August.

We are delighted to advise that the event is now going head. We will be adhering to government rules on social distancing and group numbers and the event will be run as two groups of 30 swimmers swimming at one time, rather than one big group. Social distancing will need to be adhered to at all times, including registration, briefing and entering and exiting the water. All Swimmers will be entering the water in intervals unless in their own “bubble”

It will be a little different than normal, but due to us being outside and having plenty of room at the beautiful venue of Fell Foot Park, we should all be able to socially distance safely, whilst enjoying the wonderful open water.  The swim will be 30 minutes, plenty of time to take in the beautiful views of Lake Windermere & the mountains beyond in the evening light & then a Pimms after your swim to take in the atmosphere and chat with friends.

This is a wild swim in semi darkness with your Glow in the Dark Bands (kept as memento) and the lights on the buoys to guide you… “Pure Swimming” at its finest….

It is a non competitive swim in a marked safety zone with Kayak safety and swimmers have a choice of how many laps they wish to do in 30 mins.

Wetsuits are optional if water over 16 degrees, but you must use a tow float if no wetsuit.

Age 15 + – Under 18 need parental consent & must wear a wetsuit.

  • Event Swim cap
