For the last nine years this muscular little endurance swim has attracted swimmers from around the UK to swim continuously until they complete 36km or for one mile every hour for 12 hours. Intrepid soloists and relay teams of between 2-6 swimmers join up for the challenge of swimming the 36km English Channel distance (21 miles) in a beautiful, safe English lake.

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.   

Relay swimmers are required to complete equal distances and swim in a designated team order and soloists just plough on around the course fed and nourished by their dedicated land support. 

Distance: 36km (21miles) – The length of the English Channel

Ages: 15yrs+ competent swimmers are welcome

Cost: Solo; £300.00, Relay; £360.00 (up to six swimmers)

**Wetsuits / Skins Welcome**

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
