This tough challenge at Sandford Parks Lido is only for the most hardy of swimmers.

This is a swimming race over two distances, there’s the 500m race (10 lengths) and the 1km race (20 lengths). The water will be clean, filtered, circulated and chemically closed but the temperature will be incredible cold. It is mandatory that that all competitors must wear a silicon hat and winter wetsuit for the race, with boots and gloves being a suggested extra.

It is recommended that seasoned experienced winter swimmers who are acclimatised to swimming in very cold water take part. If the pool is iced over the race will be canceled and entry fees will be refunded.
