Long distance open water swimming isn't just about swimming around buoys in a loop - it's about the journey. Travelling the length of a lake from one end to the other, swimming across a channel, or completing a swim from one set point to another gives the swim meaning.

You haven't swum a lake until you have completed the full length of it.

Chillswim specialises in open water swimming and is passionate about creating the world's best events.

Chillswim Coniston is a mass participation, fully supported swim the full 5.25 miles length of Coniston Water, in the Lake District.

  1. Transport to the start and from the finish back to the race HQ car park
