The 2021 Chillswim Coniston Swim will be held on Saturday 5 September. The Event will return to it’s original HQ at John Ruskin School in Coniston. This will be the 9th year of this incredible swimming event! Chillswim Coniston has been sold out every year since its inception. It’s a unique swim with a highly experienced management team. 

In 2021 demand is expected to be extremely high for one of the 900 places available to complete the full length of lake swim. There will be 7 separate starts based on your average mile pace to give you the best experience possible. This event has always been a wetsuit optional swim.

Chillswim Ullswater 2020

Due to the strong winds forecast on the end to end course from 10.00am the water safety team informed the organisers that it would not be safe to attempt either the 7-mile or 3-mile swim. The contingency of the event taking place on Sunday was affected by a very similar weather forecast. Therefore, the decision wa made to set up a course around the bay to the South of Park Foot with as large a loop as possible to allow swimmers to complete as many laps up to the distance as they wished.

The organisers have offered all swimmers entered into the event a free entry to the ChillSwim Ullswater End to End swim taking place in 2021 which will provisionally take place on  Saturday 17 July.
