Hi and thanks for checking out the registration page for the Exmoor Open Water Swim - to take part you need to be 17 by 31st December 2017.
The event is aimed at giving all people the opportunity to swim outdoors in the stunning location of Wimbleball Lake.
To take part you need to be a competent swimmer and at least be able to swim 1-mile in a swimming pool (64 lengths) in under 45 minutes. However, to get more out of the day we strongly recommend that you get some experience of swimming in open water, are confident in achieving the distance and have are comfortable in your wetsuit prior to taking part.
For those with more experience, who would like to swim at a faster pace, we are also introducing an "Elite Wave" for the 4km course only, with specific safety cover that will set off before the other waves. To take part you should be able to swim 1-mile in a swimming pool in under 30 minutes. There will be separate prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd for males and females.
If you order race merchandise, this will be available to collect at registration on Race Day.
Please note, the provisional start time for the first wave on the day is 9am.
