The Classic 12

Re-establishing what was once called the 'World Cup' route - and we love this one - the Classic 12 is a beautiful 13 km swim (an approximate 'baker's dozen') across the lake between Lausanne and Évian-les-Bains. It crosses the international border between Switzerland and France and is a great test for those wanting to get a real taste of open water marathon swimming.

A lead boat, support boat and kayaks shepherd waves of swimmers of a similar pace across the lake to ensure maximum safety.
