Pie & Pint Swim
Time & Location
About the Event
The winning combination of outdoor swimming, cold beer and warm pies makes this one of my most popular swim of the year. A dipping option has been added this year.
There are two swim options depending on your ability. Chose the full swim or the shorter option. The full swim is approximately 1km point to point swim across Bassenthwaite Lake landing on a quiet beach. The short option is a simple dip or short swim from the landing point that all swimmers are welcome to participate in.
Friends and family are welcome to join us, dogs are very welcome.
Every swimmer gets a pie and an option of a beer or a soft/hot drink. Dietary requirements can be catered for with advance notice.
This swim is suitable for swimmers who are confident crossing open water and happy swimming out of their depth. Your pace is not important but you should be able to finish the swim in under an hour. Swimmers will need a submersible swim bag to carry their clothes, or a supporter at the finish to meet them. Swim bags are available to hire or purchase.
