Entry for #WOW costs £150 and we welcome both wetsuit and skin swimmers. At point of registration you will be asked which you prefer but this can be changed up to the swim date. We do ask that those opting to swim without a wetsuit provide evidence of training swims and results of past races.

Your entry to #WOW includes a well stocked food stop, motor boat support for the supporting paddlers / swimmers, medical cover, start and finish venues with full use of facilities and a coach shuttle from the Brathay finish venue to the start.

Your entry fee will also include the following:

1. Bespoke 2018 WOW medal

2. Embroidered swim badge

3. High quality 2018 WOW event hoody

4. Personalised high quality 2018 WOW swim cap

5. 2018 WOW finisher certificate

6. Free 2018 WOW event photos

To take part, you will need to provide your own support canoeist holding the Swim Event Safety Award (SESA) certification. Don’t worry if your paddler doesn’t hold this qualification, we will be organising a series of social training swims in 2018 at FellFoot. You will be able to familiarise yourself with the lake and your paddler can complete the safety award on the same day.

We understand at time of entry you may not have confirmed a paddler. In this case you will still be able to enter.  You are able to make changes to the named paddler through the system up until August 26th.
