Swim 6 Solo 

This in-person event is held at Race Hub in Leicestershire. Swim as much as you can in 6 hours in our beautiful open water swimming lake. The event is chip timed and our safety crew will be on duty for the duration.

The swim route will be a 550-650m lap of our circular lake.  You can be in the water for as much or as little of the 6 hours as you like. There is no minimum distance requirement. Timing points will be in the water (so you won't need to exit to time your laps). Results will be based on distance swam over the 6 hours. You will be able to view your results throughout the event.

An event swim cap will be issued at the event and this must be worn at all times whilst in the water.

Minimum age for the Solo category is 16 years. (for pairs 16 years, for teams 10 years).


All entrants who compete in the event will receive a commemorative challenge coin, floating display frame, woven badge and completion certificate which will be collected at the event. There is an optional event t-shirt for purchase (purchase either as part of your online entry or separately here by 1st August).

There will be prizes for category winners.


The event is self supported; you will be responsible for your nutrition and equipment throughout the event. You are welcome to bring your own food and drink supplies and there is an onsite cafe serving food and drink throughout the event.

Toilet and shower facilities are also on site along with free parking.


We plan that spectators will be allowed to attend the event but please check for up to date information before the event as we may need to manage spectator numbers in line with the government guidelines at the time.

We will ensure that the event takes place within the guidelines in effect at the time of the event. Currently, the roadmap indicates that there will be minimal restrictions, if any, at this time.
