Winter swimming at Big Chill Swim on Lake Windermere 2014
We are proud to announce that Strel Swimming will be exhibiting on a popular winter swimming event in the UK. On 1.February, 2014 over 600 brave winter swimmers will be jumping into beautiful Lake Windermere in the Lake District National Park in northern England.
There are several disciplines happening:
30m penguin dip, 30m breaststroke, 60m freestyle, 4 x 30m relay, 450m endurance swim, and new this year – THE BIG CHILL SWIM 1000! All swim races are non-wetsuit, so only swim cap and costumes. The 1000m one is open to experienced cold water winter swimmers only!
We were delighted to be part of 2nd Big Chill Swim event (despite the weather!), and have received some great feedback from participants and also the media. Our founder Borut Strel participated in 30m breaststroke discipline and got a bronze medal. Congratulations!
We look forward to coming back in the future!
Cold water swimming regards!
