The event is delivered in partnership with Colwick Park Lifeguards and sponsored by Robin Hood Energy and is a great way to burn off that Christmas dinner or make room for those chocolates and mince pies later!
There will be FREE refreshments for all entrants and a medal to celebrate your bravery! There will also be FREE parking too, so your family and friends can come and cheer you on.

What facitilities are there available?
The Adventure Centre has showers with hot water, toilet facilities and space to sit in the warm for refreshments following the event.
What will be the distance of the swim?
The buoys will be located at a shorter distance than for the summer programme of swims, this is due to the cold temperatures expected for the time of year. It is up to entrants how far they wish to swim, and how long they wish to stay in the water. Even a quick dip and splash counts towards bravery!

There are lockers in the changing rooms which can be secured with a £1 coin. There is also space for belongings to be left in the main room where registration takes place. This will be manned during the event.
