Join us for a fun, challenging and spectacular event in one of the most beautiful lakes in Great Britain.
The events goal is to give to everyone the opportunity to swim in this incredible lake in the heart of Exmoor. While there are medals for those who come in the top three for their age groups, the majority of swimmers will simply be challenging themselves to participate in a safe and friendly open water swimming environment at Wimbleball Lake.

Enjoy the thrill of an open water swim
The 4km route will take the swimmers all the way down to the end and back, on a stunning single loop tour of the whole lake. Safety will be covered by kayaks and motorboats, as the swimmers enjoy unparalleled views of this special place.
The 4km swim distance is designed as a challenge, even for the seasoned long distance open water swimmers and slightly longer than an Iron Man swim.
For those who are not ready to take on the 4km route, we have a 2km course, which will hopefully result in returns next year to take on the 4km or 6km courses!
