Never swam in a black watered lake before. Come to think of it, have never swam in a lake before full stop.Do you think my feeble breast-stroke would be OK? (sprint of course!)

For sprint you should get away with BS.  For the Oly distance that would get a bit knackering.  For the Half... no way.

Nam - there were a few who did BS for IMUK !! - I think sore shins may have been one of them.

Cake, I've signed up for the sprint. Am ramping up the run training so won't have that much biking and swimming time but really fancy doing another tri.

Think I'm going for the Olympic distance. Been getting in some open water practice with my club and have done a sprint race which was open water but have yet to do 1500m!!

Am I right in thinking you can actually stand up in the lake if you get knackered?!

Still got a couple more weekends of practice though so will hopefully be ok!

Did Olympic distance bike and run at Horwich back in may but the swim was only 800m and was in the pool!

Mick you can happily float in your wetsuit if you need to take a beather. No idea how deep the lake is through.
The lake is shallow and you will get disqualified IF you walk!!, there are a lot of freshwater mussels? in the lake and they are razor sharp and will shred your feet. They are one of the reasons why the water is so dark.

Well, I'm in at long last - middle distance - but can't say I'm over enthused about it  

Anyone any idea how they count the laps on the swim, looks as though it could all get a bit confusing to me

How many distances will be swimming at the same time?  Do you have the sprints doing their 500m at the same time as the HIM peeps doing their laps?  Could potentially get a biy raucous with people getting under each other's feet?

The middle distance people get to go first, then 1 hour later everyone else gets to go

I know they give you wrist bands for the run, but know about swim laps or bike laps

Event details from2009

I found it quite useful reading the instructions from the 2009 race, link above

This years race info is out and they have changed the bike course quite a lot.

Only 5 laps now and 58 miles, it was an out and back course its now a loop so should be as boring
