Derwent Water Swim

The Epic Lakes Swim Series consists of either 2 or 3 open water swim events at 3 different locations in Cumbria. Derwent Water is the first event of the series.

Our 3 venues are Coniston Water, Derwent Water (Keswick) and Ullswater (Patterdale) and the scenery for each is absolutely breathtaking.

Ditch the Hitchers
To help protect our beautiful lakes, streams and tarns from the spread of invasive non-native species (INNS), it is essential that we all take care to clean our swimming kit thoroughly before and after swimming in different water bodies; With hundreds of people from all over the country converging on one lake to undertake a swim the risk that we could accidently spread the problem is magnified. It is important that all swimming kit is washed with clean water as close to the water body that you have just left, ideally on the lake shore. Care should be taken to remove any plant matter or animals that may have attached themselves. They need to be left on site and not transported home or to another water body. Please make sure that you follow the biosecurity procedures at your swim event.
