SwimRutland are proud to present our 2020 events

SwimRutland an amazing opportunity to swim across Rutland water. With a range of distance options there is opportunity for everyone to take on this challenge. From 500m to 8000m all abilities are welcome. This area of the lake is out of bounds to swimmers most of the year, but one day each August we get to swim across from Normanton too Whitwell. The course is well marked and covered by professional safety crews so you can concentrate on the swimming. It's a really special opportunity to achieve something unique. 

SwimRutland NightSwim was epic, its coming back again in 2020! It was an incredible sight seeing everyone swim into the darkness, a truly unique experience our swimmers were buzzing about. Are you scared of the dark? Will you join us in 2020? A small number of swimmers get this opportunity each year. It's a fantastic, friendly and social event to round out the summer open water swim season. It's not one to take too seriously but definitely one to enjoy. 

Our events have repeatedly sold out so make sure you book your place and aren't disappointed. 

These exciting events are brought to you by a local family team passionate about delivering amazing events at an incredible venue.
