Dip in the Dark Swim Event

Dip in the Dark Swim Event


The Dip in the dark is a swim with a difference, starting at 7pm on Friday 5th October 2018 with mulled wine for all swimmers :-)
It will be dark with swimmers using a similar buoyed course used by the Friday nights swims, but this time with a lighted swim course and glow sticks attached to your wetsuit or under your goggle strap/ swim cap. It is a fun swim, there is an option of a 250m or 500m timed swim.
And for those swimmers who just want a leisurely non timed swim, that is absolutely fine too. :-)
The safety kayak team will be lit up too and the buoys will be visible to guide you around the 250m loop.

Age 16+ – under 18 need parental consent.
Wetsuits are mandatory
Entry just £22
Event Swim cap
Event medal to all finishers
Mulled Wine or Hot spiced apple

Free event photo – downloadable from Face Book after the event from the talented James Kirby
