lake windermere 10.5 mile swim race non-wetsuit

Lake Windermere

To swim the length of Lake Windermere, England's largest lake, is a mighty challenge. More people have climbed Mount Everest than have ever made this swim ! It is 10.5 miles, or 16.8 kilometres, of fresh, cold water averaging between 14 and 17 degrees centigrade. The record is around 3 hours and 40 minutes, but most of us mortals will take between 5 and 9 hours to complete the distance.

Those entering this event are accepting a huge personal challenge. so i think once i have chatted to my g.f about this 2015 i will entre for this event
