A shore-to-shore crossing of Windermere at its narrowest point will set the stage for what is yet to come: Proceeding higher into the hills and forests of the area and immersing yourself into the Lake itself, tackling short wades, swims,* slides, jumps and an amazingly bold floating assault course. A trademark Man Vs “Vertical Kilometre” will push those quads to breaking point and help to rack up a whopping 3000ft of ascent before you psych yourself up for a “Swallows and Amazons” rope swing suspended from a crane chucking you into the drink. After clocking up those miles you’re going to be looking forward to a lie down and a pint, sit back and relax as you hurtle across the finish line on our giant water slide.
