Organiser's Description

Lechlade & District Lions Club's fourth Open Water Swimming Race & Challenge will be held in Bowmoor Lake, Lechlade, Gloucestershire, courtesy of the Bowmoor Sailing Club.
This year we are delighted to announce that Olympic Medal swimmer, Cassie Patten, has agreed to host the event as well as sharing some of her experience and knowledge.
Bowmoor Lake is the best open water location in the Cotswolds, it is fed by an underground stream and is managed to minimise weed growth.
We start at 9-00 with a 3k race for experienced open water swimmers. At 10-30 we have a 3k, 2k or 1k sponsored challenge to help raise money for charity. Uniquely we have a 250m taster for those new to Open Water Swimming! The entry fee will be £25 for all the day’s events apart from the taster session, which is £10.

This was a great, low key event. The Lions were so welcoming and friendly. The lake is a great swimming venue. Would have had 5 stars but the first turn buoy was invisible until we were almost on it. Perhaps moor a dinghy with a bright sail by it. I will definitely be back.
