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 Ullswater is a mass participation, fully supported swim of the full 7 miles length of Ullswater in the Lake District.

Entry includes:

  1. Transport to the start and from the finish back to the race HQ car park
  2. Water safety support along the swim
  3. Six feed stations along the route providing drinks
  4. Silicone swim hat
  5. Free parking on race day for participants
  6. Chillswim Ullswater Finisher's medal for each participant
  7. Chillswim Ullswater branded hoody


The route starts at the South end of the lake at Glenridding and finishes at the North end just outside Pooley Bridge at Park Foot Holiday Park. After the first mile swimmers will keep within approximately 50 metres of the shore and event mile marker buoys and support watercraft will direct swimmers.
