We are holding two annual fireworks displays in 2018. The Fireworks 500 Open Water Swim on Saturday 3rd November and the main late night Capernwray Fireworks display on Wednesday 7th November 2018.

Fireworks 500 Open Water Swim - Sat 3rd Nov 2018

This event is organised by MyTri and only swimmers entered for this event can swim on this evening. Spectators are welcome. We are not open for diving this evening; however, all are welcome at our Capernwray Event on 7th.

The Fireworks 500 is a 500m open water swim, at Capernwray Dive Centre near Lancaster. Starting on the rocket, swimmers can race or leisurely complete one lap (500m) of the quarry. It's long enough for you to experience the beauty of night swimming in safe secure surroundings but short enough that you get to the end before the chill sets in! You will wear a glow stick on your wetsuit which creates quite a scene in the quarry and give you the perfectly lit trail to follow! Following the swim, you can warm up with a hot chocolate and then enjoy the fireworks display. If you're looking for something different and memorable, then you've come to the right place!
