New relay option

Continued for 2023 we have a two person relay option.

Change at the halfway feed to share this experience with a swimmer friend.

Our recommendation is that you either have a support team to drive you to the exchange point or use the car park at Ferry Nab which will enable you to take the ferry over the lake and walk the short distance to the swap over point. You must be able to provide your own paddler to support your swim, which can also be changed at the halfway feed.

Voom partnership

We are delighted to announce that #WOW23 will be supported by VOOM Nutrition.

VOOM Nutrition is run by a dedicated team living and working close to the Lakes, all striving to provide great tasting energy in bar form. They have a depth of knowledge so if you have any questions do get in touch as they’d be happy to listen and advise.

VOOM will be on hand at the feed stop during this year with VOOM Hydrate electrolyte drink and the popular Pocket Rocket Energy Bars!

Each swimmer will emailed a code which will enable them to receive 30% off retail price.
