Summer Edition: 15th July 2018
Autumn Edition: 7th October 2018
SwimRun Fritton Lake is returning TWICE in 2018 after a sold out and very successful inaugural 2017 event. The Summer edition embodies fun and team work with a healthy serving of mud under a Summer sky whilst the Autumn Edition provides cooler water in the true spirit of Otillo. With trails through the pristine woodland of the privately owned Somerleyton Estate and beautiful views as you plunge into Fritton Lake this event delivers a huge amount of fun as you race in areas not normally accessible to the public.
In teams of two you will complete a 10km course comprised of 6 run sections and 5 swims. Each leg offering stunning views and varied terrain. Always within 10m of your team mate on the swim and 100m on the run, you will share the experience, the fun, the beauty and the suffering as you race the pre-marked course alternating between running and swimming.
Running in your wetsuit/swimming kit and swimming in your trainers you will travel through beautiful unspoilt surroundings immersed (literally!) in nature.
The route totals approximately 1800m of open water swimming, entering and exiting at various locations along the lake. Together with approximately 8.2 km of mixed terrain running you will explore both sides of the lake and cross the Norfolk/Suffolk boundary many times.
We have teamed up with a number of local businesses to bring you discounts on everything from running gear to bike servicing and sports therapy.
