KMF Derwent Island 1500m Swim
June 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm£31
A classic in the Keswick Mountain Festival sporting line-up, the1500m open water swim will take you out and around Derwent Island in a clockwise direction and then back in towards Crow Park. The beauty of Derwentwater and its surrounding views of Catbells, Skiddaw and the Borrowdale Valley will make this swim a memorable experience for all participants. A deep-water start will take you across to the shores of Derwent Isle, before swimming clockwise alongside its shores overlooked by the historic Island. Finish under the gantry back at the Festival base with an excited crowd ready to cheer you home. Please note: water temp for this event will be between 11oC – 14oC and you should prepare yourself accordingly. We recommend pre-event training in the water. Gloves and socks are permitted.
