Man Made Lake | Essex, UK | 5.00 stars

Management Description

Our 800m supervised swim course, located in Boreham, just outside Chelmsford in Essex, is open seven days a week between April and October. With easy exit all round the lake, there’s an average depth over 2m whilst on course. We also have a shorter 400m course for novice swimmers, while all staff are RLSS qualified. For triathletes, we have a 1km running track around the lake, as well as a bike racking and transition area.
Whatever your level, we have onsite classes and coaches that can make you a better triathlete or outdoor swimmer. Gill and Dawn from Tri’n’swimwell organise Introductory and Advanced group coaching sessions throughout the season with sessions taking place on Saturday or Sunday mornings at 8:30am. They also organise a number of Total Immersion workshops across the season. Bespoke one-to-one coaching is available from Tri’n’swimwell.
So, whether your ambition is to complete your first sprint triathlon swim, or to take on the English Channel, we have the expertise to help you make the most of your talents.
£7 per visit, club rates available. Monthly and season tickets.
