Inspire2tri has delivered Open Water Swimming at Rutland Water, Whitwell site since 2012 and works closely in partnership with the Watersports Team. This is a truely beautiful lake. The Sunday swim course is 500m/200-250m marked course within the more sheltered creek area. Evening courses are run within the creek and we may venture out into the lake a little to admire the views!
Safety is paramount with weekly water testing, BEYOND SWIM accreditation (anticipated for 2023 before start of season) and the excellent Watersports safety team of canoes and powerboats.
Triathletes, Cyclists and runners can arrive by bike or foot and there's a cafe and plenty of other activities on-site to keep the whole family occupied.  We just love "our lake" and are priviledged to work with SwimRutland Events, Anglian Water and the Watersports team in our "second home".
