You can choose either the 500m, the 1 mile or the 'Iron' 3.8k distances, depending upon your age and ability. Coniston provides yet another fantastic venue, with stunning views and it's a great family day out. Visit the famous Bluebird Cafe or take a ride on the Steam Gondola. Coniston is of course famous for Donald Campbell's speed record, but you can take things a bit more leisurely and enjoy the surroundings. It's going to be another EPIC day of swimming, come and join us!
