The swim area is an outdoor laned section of the Low Wood Bay Resort Marina. Lanes will be separate by ropes, and 30m long. Each lane will have steps for both entry and exit, and your clothes will be waiting for you at the end of your race. We expect the water to be between 5 and 10 degrees, and NO WETSUITS ARE ALLOWED! Each race will be timed, and the fastest time per age group will win each category. Make sure you stay around for the prize giving and medal ceremonies and our splendid Barn Dance on Saturday evening.
The Coniston 14 is probably the most beautiful road race in Britain. Each year it attracts some 1600 runners and has a reputation for being one of the best organised small races in the country. The Race is organised by an enthusiastic committee of volunteers from Coniston village.
