5k Open Water Swimathon

An awesome challenge to help raise money for the wonderful Charities Cancer Research and Marie Curie! The small lake has excellent facilities and with a small number of athletes this year (47 in total) it made for a relaxed setting.

Big question... would I do this event again? Answer: Yes, but I’d like to try a different location because there are so many to choose from !
