Chillswim’s passion is open water swimming, outdoor swimming, wild swimming, open water swim events and supporting the growth of long distance swimming in the English Lake District and throughout the UK.
All of our events and guided swims take place in the English Lake District which we believe is most probably the best place on the planet to swim!!
Chillswim has been owned and managed by Epic Events LTD since 2018 when we acquired the business from the original founder Colin Hill to take Chillswim forward and onto it’s next chapter.
Colin Hill founded Chillswim back in 2013 and has been an open water swimming pioneer which has also included being the founder and project manager of the Great Swim series at Nova International (2008 – 2011), being Technical Operations Manager for the Olympic Games Marathon Swimming, London 2012.
