Are there feed stations along the course?
Whilst most swimmers will eat and drink along the way, we’ve teamed up with the National Trust on the shores of Windermere to create an official feed station for both swimmers and spectators to enjoy. Located perfectly half way along the Lake, the shore provides the perfect place for swimmers to refuel and recharge their batteries for the second half of their epic journey.The T2 Team will be serving a selection of hot food and drink and if you have any land based support crew on the day, they are more than welcome to join us here to provide you and your water based crew with additional supplies, should it be required.
Did the race in 2019
I gave up part of my holiday to support a swimmer. He trained for 9 months and was super fit. The organisation was a shambles from day 1 and on the day they hadn't even bothered to inform the other lake users that 200 swimmers and 200 safety boats would be strung out along the lake. Worst of all, our swimmer was disqualified at the half way mark for being to slow. If they had bothered to tell him he could easily have made it in time, but along with several others he was thrown off the water. Disgraceful.
