About
SwimRun Fritton Lake is returning TWICE in 2018 after a sold out and very successful inaugural 2017 event. This Summer edition of the Swedish style Ötillo event embodies fun and team work with a healthy serving of mud under a Summer sky. Run trails through the privately owned Somerleyton Estate and plunge into the beautiful Fritton Lake on this rare opportunity to experience the pristine woodlands and beautiful views in areas not normally accessible to the public. If you prefer your SwimRun colder, wetter & muddier then why not check out our Autumn edition of this event? In teams of two you will complete a 10km course comprised of 6 run sections and 5 swims. Each leg offering stunning views and varied terrain. Always within 10m of your team mate on the swim and 100m on the run you will share the experience, the fun, the beauty and the suffering as you race the pre-marked course alternating between running and swimming.Running in your wetsuit/swimming kit and swimming in your trainers you will travel through beautiful unspoilt surroundings immersed (literally!) in nature.The route totals approximately 1800m of open water swimming, entering and exiting at various locations along the lake. Together with approximately 8.2 km of mixed terrain running you will explore both sides of the lake and cross the Norfolk/Suffolk boundary many times.

Route information
The route comprises approximately 1800m of open water swimming and 8.2km of
mixed terrain running. The routes will be clearly signed for competitors to follow. All
teams must adhere to the signed routes without deviation.
The route map will not be published before event day as much of the route takes
place on private land not normally accessible to the public. The planned route
includes 6 run stages and 5 swim stages. The longest run stage is 2.9km and the
longest swim stage is 650m.
Both races will use the same course with the same swim and run sections. The
summer edition will go clockwise around the lake whereas the autumn edition will go
anti clockwise in the opposite direction.
The race organiser reserves the right to change the race route at any point up to and
including the day of the event.
Competitors will be entering and exiting the lake at various points, which will be
marked. Whilst every effort will be made to ensure competitors safety you must be
aware that being a natural environment there is every possibility of debris being
present underfoot. For this reason the wearing of trainers / running shoes is
mandatory throughout the race. Diving is not permitted.
Much of the run will take place on marked woodland trails. Due to the proximity of
the lake these can be extremely wet and muddy especially in the event of wet
weather.
