The blue waters and native forest of Lake Tikitapu (Blue Lake) makes the Generation Homes Legend of the Lake a very special experience for swimmers and spectators at our only fresh water event in the Series. Maximise your day and circumnavigate the Lake in our long swim or perhaps take on a swim plus the Amphibian to really challenge yourself and tick the ‘double-header’ box on your goal list.
