Sea Swim Festival
Date: Saturday 25th August 2018

This open water sea swimming event is a fantastic chance to try a swim of a particular distance if you're a beginner or experienced swimmer.

The Swim Festival is a mass-participation open water sea swimming event and a great chance to try a swim of a particular distance. Alternatively, if you're feeling particularly fit, strong and ready for an extra challenge you could swim two or even all three distances!

The event offers a choice of a 1km, 2km, or 3km distance. The course will consist of 1km laps and will involve a short Australian style exit near the water's edge. The swims will have separate start times, which provides the opportunity to swim three times and clock up 6km! 

Each competitor will receive a silicone swim hat, a special commemorative bespoke glass medal hand made by Jo Downs, as well as an all important free hot drink!
Male and Female prizes for overall 1st, 2nd, 3rd and age category winners for all swim distances.

Entry Prices:
1km  £25     2km  £30     3km £35
