Why not set yourself the challenge of trying to swim the equivalent of the Channel, or the Thames, or just set yourself a mile or two over the month of July?
There will be prizes - one for who has swum furthest and a random draw for all others undertaking a challenge. To download a challenge form please click here.
Some helpful info:
Based on 25 metre length pool
• 1 mile = 64 lengths
• The English Channel (across as usual swimmers do) = 1,360 lengths (21.5 miles)
• The River Thames (from source to outlet) = 13,760 lengths (215 miles)
Imagine swimming outside, the sun reflecting off the water, stunning scenery surrounding you with the sounds of birds singing. Sounds good? Then why not give it a try.
There are triathlon clubs in Sheffield which offer open water swimming where you do not have to be training or considering a triathlon to attend the session. For more information about outdoor swimming go to http://sheffieldtriclub.com/training/open-water.
