I am planning to swim 10,000 metres over the course of 10 days in open water that is just 10 degrees C! Hence the triple X!
This will be completed without a wetsuit so the time in the water for each swim will be limited (i.e. before hypothermia!).
This challenge will take place between Friday 16th and Sunday 25th October and can be followed by following me on Strava as well as updates posted here! I intend to complete most of the swims at Clevedon Marine Lake and will try to post days/times on here, supporters welcomed!
As the Chair of City of Bristol I know just how much work has gone on to get the club back in the water, over 500 members training again, on top of all the support that we were able to give our members throughout lockdown. However, we have significantly increased costs on our return to the pool as well as loss of vital income in the form of open meets and other events that we traditionally hold Therefore the club has launched this crowdfunding appeal and this is my small contribution!
