The Captain James Wadsworth Challenge is pleased to confirm that Zone3 Victory Swim The Lake, will return on Thursday 5 September 2019 at Waterland Outdoor Pursuits, Lake 32 Cotswold Water Park, near Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

Zone3, Europe’s leading, award-winning triathlon brand is the official partner of the

Zone3 Victory Swim The Lake which will raise money for the Felix Fund, the charity which helps bomb disposal and search personnel and their families.

“Back for a second year, we are ensuring that this challenge will attract swimmers of all abilities as participants can choose to swim 400, 700 or 1,500 metres or more.” said Capt. James Wadsworth, founder of Zone3 Victory Swim.

He continues “It’s a fun event that the whole family can get involved with. There will be refreshments available and a chance to camp over if participants and spectators want to extend the experience.”

Sam Chapman, International Marketing Manager at Zone3, said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the lake swim. The Felix Fund is such a wonderful charity. The impact it has on families is truly inspiring and Zone3 are honoured to be involved with this event and hopefully for many more years to come.’’

Capt. Wadsworth joined the army in 1995 and worked in the Explosive Ordnance Display (OED) unit and completed tours of Northern Ireland, Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2008, he was awarded the Conspicuous Gallantry Cross. Later this year, Capt. Wadsworth will receive an MBE in recognition of both his role in the military and his charitable work.

Almost every day, bomb disposal and search personnel deal with highly pressured situations. This continued exposure to intense stress can have lasting effects, both physical and mental. Felix Fund aims to assist with the well-being of individuals within the Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) and Search community.
