What do I need to enter?
There will be the option when entering the mile or the 5km races to swim without a wetsuit (Skin Swimmer). You must have previous event experience of swimming without a wetsuit which must be provided at the point of entry. Tow Floats will be compulsory for all Skin Swimmers. For all other competitors wetsuits are compulsory. Shortie type wetsuits are allowed if you are an experienced swimmer, but we recommend full length arms and legs due to the cold temperatures. If you are susceptible to the cold, we would also recommend neoprene hats, socks and gloves. The minimum age for competitors is 11/14/17 for 500m/1mile/5km on the day of the event.
How much to enter:
The cost to enter the 500m/1mile/5km is £20/25/32. Entries will close either at 12 noon on the Thursday prior to the event or when the event fills, whichever occurs first.
