The Utterly Buttermere Swim Course

Buttermere is an utterly stunning location for a swim; it truly is an outdoor swimmers paradise. The Utterly Buttermere swim is a ‘sportive’ swim event with an emphasis on personal achievement and ‘adventure swimming’. The Utterly Buttermere swim is designed to get away from the idea of swimming around buoys to swimming around the edge of the Lake following its natural contors and enjoying the wilder surroundings of this beautiful area. The 5 and 10km courses follow the circumference of the lake, one lap for the 5k and two for the 10k. The trick is to navigate by keeping the shore on your left and follow it as it contours around the bays.  The 1500m is a ‘triangular’ shape across the Lake corner and is a great introduction to the Buttermere swim.
