Whether you are a novice, experienced open water swimmer or an Olympic athlete, this event is a fun challenge to take on.

We have three different distances for you to pick from: 1500m, 2500m or the biggie 5000m. All distances take place in the Regatta Lake at the National Water Sports Centre, Nottingham.

The swim itself is very simple to navigate, as you will have sight of the banks at all times. The very big orange blueseventy swim buoys will be the turning points. For the 5k swimmers, who do two laps of the course, there will be a drink station which will offer water or High5. All swimmers will be helped out of the water and handed their finishers medal on completion.

Any front stroke is permitted in this event, and wetsuits are completely optional – We can’t promise the water will be warm so we would recommend all beginners, and those who feel the cold, to wear a wetsuit - it will help keep you warm as well as more buoyant in the water. Experienced swimmers can wear any swimwear - even illegal swimskins!


Overall, a well organised 5k event and I'd definitely consider entering again (if I'm not doing Outlaw the next day!). “
