This is year 3 of our Lara’s Birthday weekend Lake’s event and this year it will be held at Coniston Water, Cumbria. Team Lara will swim from Riggs Wood Pier around Peel Island and back, and then run around the beautiful moorland overlooking the lake. We will be camping and partying afterwards in true Lara style.
– The swim will start at 10.30am Riggs Wood Pier, Ulverston, Cumbria.
– The run will start around 11.30 noon from the same pier, with the finish line in Dodgson Wood Campsite, Ulverston, Cumbria
Supporters should bring a picnic for the day time, and there will be a BBQ from 6.30pm with lots of lovely outdoor reared meat care of Bowland Pork Beef and Lamb. The BBQ costs £10 per person and should be pre-booked by donating £10 here.
After the BBQ we will be camping – open fire, lots of prosecco and a keg of Coniston Bluebird ale! The cost to camp is £10 per tent. You can book your spot by donating £10 here. Don’t forget the marhsmallows!
Directions and Parking: The campsite is opposite the pier. However there are no postcodes for either location. If you put the postcode LA12 8DF into your sat nav it will take you to the correct road. Then continue for a further 3miles until you see Lara’s Foundation signs. You can park at the campsite and walk down to the pier.
