This weekend also saw three of our athletes head to Derwent Reservoir to participate in the 5 and 10mile events. Derwent Reservoir is on the border between County Durham and Northumberland and is one of the biggest inland waters in England, 3.5 miles long and covers an area of 4 km² and has a maximum depth of 100 ft and when full, holds 11,000 million gallons….you can sleep tonight knowing this!
