After an outstanding debut event in 2013 we are returning for a 2nd year to the £10million Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre.
Taking place within Crosby Coastal Park swimmers and spectators alike will be able to enjoy the fantastic facilities available including a Bar & Bistro overlooking the lake and even onsite accommodation if required – for more information click here.
The Marine Lake itself covers 24 hectares and is easily accessible immediately outside the centre with plenty prime viewing areas for spectators. Separated and sheltered from the sea by the promenade and sand dunes, the lake is a haven for Open Water Swimming and has proven to be a popular venue.
On the beach beyond the dunes ‘Another Place’ can be found – these spectacular sculptures by Antony Gormley consist of 100 cast-iron, life-size figures spread out along three kilometres of the foreshore, stretching almost one kilometre out to sea.
Car Parking will be available onsite throughout the event.
There will be 4 distances on offer which will suit all ages and abilities 400m, 750m, 1500m and 3.8k (Iron distance).
Swimmers for each distance will be grouped and start together, electronic chip timing will be used to ensure all participants receive an accurate finish time.
Swimming caps will be provided and must be worn by all swimmers.
Wetsuits are optional and results will indicate non wetsuit swimmers.
The event will be run in accordance with the Laws and Regulations governing Open Water Swimming as published in the ASA’s handbook.
Each finisher will receive a custom designed medal and 'goody bag'.
Prizes will be awarded for Male and Female overall Winners in each category.
