We are pleased to announce our second Ice Swimming with an Ice Mile event on the 10th February 2018.
We will have 3 distances; 450m, 1k and for the acclimatised* the Ice Mile (a skins/standard swimwear only swim).
You will be able to enjoy this stunning setting while pushing your boundaries in and safe and controlled environment.
Distances will be 450m, 1k & a 1 mile swim on the day. Plus we will have the ‘Chilly Dip’ which is as it suggests a quick Dip in the chilly waters.
Due to the nature of this swim and to ensure the safety of all participants, swimmers will have to adhere to the following:
– Swimmers must be a regular attendee at Vigour Winter Swim Sessions or maintain and present a weekly winter swim log
– A cut off time of 40 minutes will apply for the 1 mile swim, 30 minutes for the 1k and 15 minutes for the 450m.
– Provide complete medical form by their doctor, including an ECG.
– Each swimmer must bring along a ‘buddy’ to the event
We will have a fully qualified Doctor, Paramedic plus First Aiders on site during the course of the event including after the swim to make sure everyone warms up and recovers.
