Current Swim Challenge


Derwentwater Swim Challenge

The Derwentwater is the 10th longest lake in the Lake District and is surrounded by a number of scenic hills (known locally as fells) including Cabfells and Walla Crag. Your swim starts at the south end of the lake, passing by St Herbert’s Island, which sits in the centre of the lake, before heading North to the top end close to the town of Keswick.

You have from 25th October till 12th November to swim 4633m!

Upcoming Swim Challenges

North Pole Swim Challenge

Individual Challenge

The small city of North Pole is situated to the South East of Fairbanks, Alaska. It was given the name in 1952 after the area was bought by a development company hoping to attract toy manufacturers.

Today the local post office receives hundreds and thousands of letters to Santa Claus each year and tourists flock to the area to visit Santa Claus House and the Arctic Bar.

Your challenge is to zig zag your way through the town, starting at Hotel North Pole, you'll swing by Santa Clause house (don't forget to wave to Santa as you pass), then past the city's three schools before head North, finishing up at North Pole plaza on Santa Claus Lane.

You will have from 19th November till 18th December to swim 4987m!
