THE LONGEST SWIM ON THE LONGEST DAY

Virtual Event

Mon 21st June 2021

3 races

Free - £15.00

Organiser's Description

We can’t get together in a mass event this year, so instead we’re going to swim virtually on (or around) Monday June 21st 2021.

ANY STROKE, ANY PLACE, ANY DISTANCE, ANY AGE

The swim itself can be anything you want it to be: an endurance feat in your local open water lake, a downstream river swim, a sea swim, a crossing, a swim safari (multiple dips on the one day or over a few days). It can be 500m or 10k; breaststroke or butterfly. It can be more about the hike to the swim spot.

The key is to take some time off for your swimming, celebrate the start of summer and share it with others. Or, as some of our Southern Hemisphere friends are doing, you want to mark the start of winter with a swim on your shortest day. Perhaps you simply want to join us in our worldwide celebration of swimming – everyone is welcome!

Whatever distance you decide to do, please make sure it is a challenge you are able to safely complete. If you are pushing yourself, have safety cover – by (for example) doing the swim at a lido, outdoor pool or lifeguarded lake.

This is a fundraiser for The Outdoor Swimming Society and Project Seagrass. One supporting peoples’ swimming dreams; the other helping preserve our watery planet.
