The very first swim event in Longwater Lake took place on Wednesday 10 September 2014.
Eleven experienced open water swimmers donned their wetsuits and goggles and completed a 1km route.
Weather was on our side with a gloriously sunny Berkshire evening greeting everyone. Triathlon trainer, Dom Dos Remedios, gave the swimmers a quick briefing before leading them down to the water’s edge. Some swimmer’s tentatively entered the water (others not so!) and with a ‘3, 2, 1’, they were off to do four laps of the designated route.
All swimmers completed the route and exited the lake with smiles on their faces.
Now this inaugural swim has been completed we are hoping to organise more open water swims in the years to come, so keep a look out for more information.
