Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace Beckons You!

This years SwimBritain open water swim took place at Blenheim Palace.
Participants joined in a pre-swim warm up, took a dunk in our acclimatization zone and finished with an official team photo and onsite hot showers. During the swim participants were able to fuel up on free hot drinks and snacks to keep their energy high.
This year was even bigger and better with the addition of our family fun day to keep friends and family entertained whilst participants and their team were diving into the Great Lake!
