The swim will take place in the beautiful lakes of the Cotswolds. The event will be a deep-water start with all swimmers in the race starting together. There will be timed splits for each 1km of the course via a timing chip on your wrist (tagging the pontoon on each lap). There is the option for a self-fuelled feed station at each km too.
