Cold Water Swimming Championships 2015
Tooting Bec Lido, London, 24 January 2015
Dare you thrill to the chill? The original cold water swimming championships is back for 2015. South London Swimming Club plays host to the 6th UK Cold Water Swimming Championships at the spiritual home of cold water swimming, Tooting Bec Lido, on Saturday 24 January 2015.
Bigger and better than ever before, the 2015 Championships will be a festival of cold water swimming. As well as the individual freestyle dash and traditional head-up breastroke races, why not grab your mates and enter the team relays? Or limber up to take part in our aquatic obstacle race – all in water as low as 1°C. Not quite up to a full race? Steel your nerves and join us for a mass jump-in. Then once you’ve braved the chilly depths of the largest unheated freshwater pool in the UK, thaw out in our Finnish sauna and hot tubs.
Fabulous prizes will be awarded for best fancy dress costume and best hat. And once you’ve finished swimming, grab a hot toddy at the Budgie Smuggler’s Arms, check out the host of food stalls and exhibitor stands and marvel at the cornucopia of poolside and aquatic attractions.
Registration for the UK Cold Water Swimming Championships opens on 15 November 2014.
If you are interested in sponsorship opportunities or would like to have a stall in the marquee please email us.
