New Year’s Day Charity Swim 2018
January 1, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 2:00 pm GMT
Charity Swim 2018
Start 2018 off in a totally cool way by leaping into the invigorating, glacier-like waters of Salford Quays for Charity Swim. Swimmers can do a swift 150m lap of the Uswim iceberg course or stay in as long as they feel comfortable in water temps of approximately 5degrees C!
Commemorative swim caps, medals provided on the day. Funky Hat Competition. Look the part! Wear your funkiest, funniest, original creations. Prize for the best dressed.
Due to the expected numbers we’re organising swimmers into three ‘waves’ 10 minutes apart with the first wave leaping in at 11.00am. Be there to register from 9.30-10.30am where all will become clear. The first and second waves will comprise of experienced cold water swimmers with newbies and the ever-so-slightly-nervous dippers in the third wave so we can keep an extra careful watch of y’all.
Swim for charity
All swim entry fees will be going to a brilliant, local children’s charity (to be confirmed) By swimming on the day you’ll be putting smiles on lots of faces (including your own!)
