Changes for 2019

Posted on 26th September 2018

Reviewing the 2018 event we listened to feedback from both swimmers and paddlers.

For 2019 T2 Events will bring you the same unique challenge with some some small changes that will go to make the best Windermere One Way event ever.

2019 gives swimmers the chance to enter one of four ways depending on your aim.

Option 1 Challenge Wave Swimmer providing own paddler £160

Option 2 Challenge Wave T2 sourcing a paddler on behalf of the swimmer £310

Option 3 Elite Wave A sub 5 hour swimmer providing own paddler £160

Option 4 Elite Wave A sub 5 hour swimmer with T2 sourcing a paddler £360

The challenge waves will be required to stop and exit the water at the half way feed, giving swimmers and paddlers a chance to refuel, stretch their legs and get comfortable. The time will be recorded on the electric timing chip and time spent at the feed will be subtracted in the over all time. All splits will be published.

The Elite swimmers will also be required to check in for safety purposes at the feed stop but can then continue on to Brathay. We ask that your swim time be predicted around the 5 hour mark.

Entries will open on the 1st October.
