One-Off Swim Sessions:
One price for any length of swim, whether you want to dip your toes or train for a triathlon – there will be a swim route covering over half the lake (not behind the island) as well as the usual cordoned ‘dip zone’.
Please note, the distance available to swim around the lake may vary according to weather and staff availability.
· All participants must be 8 years or over
· All U12s must be accompanied in the water by an appropriate adult. All U18s must be supervised by an appropriate adult on site
Tuesdays 9:00am to 10:00am
Sundays 9:00am to 10:30am
Lake Dip PLUS Polar Bear Challenge
In addition to the gentle, open water dip zone, we’ve set up a separate 125 metre course, perfect for those participating in the Polar Bear and Penguin challenges.
Conquer the Polar Challenge course and bask in the camaraderie of the Lake Dip, as we make sure you get everything you need from your swim.
It’s the ultimate cold-water plunge!
Sunday Swim Spectacle
The winter chill won’t stop us – Dip, Go Polar or… Brave the Buoys!
On Sunday mornings, join us for an epic Lake Swim adventure as we brave the elements.
Just like Tuesdays you can choose to Dip in the usual zone, or take on the Polar Challenge course, but on Sundays, the intrepid among you are also welcome to train by swimming the Yellow Buoy course – as long as the weather and spirit of our swimmers allow.
