Teams of 8 swimmers must work together to swim the 22-mile equivalent of the English Channel

About this Event

Involve Adventures is delighted to announce that it is an Official Fundraising Partner 2019 for the Yorkshire Cricket Foundation (YCF). As well supporting YCF’s fundraising plans for their 10th anniversary, Involve Adventures is also celebrating its 10th anniversary and is planning and participating in 10 mini-challenges across the summer of 2019, for the YCF.

Involve Adventures has set-up this private challenge, where teams of 8 swimmers must work together to swim the 22-mile equivalent of the English Channel (or 1416 lengths of this 25m pool) in 8 hours: that’s 22 lengths per lane per hour.

Our 64 swimmers will work on a rotation basis across the 8 hours (guaranteed swim of 2 hours per person), to see how close they can get to the 1416 lengths. Each of the eight lanes can accommodate 2 swimmers at a time, when necessary; as each lane will have a target of 177 lengths in the 8 hours.

Fee covers £900 cost of venue, plus a donation to YCF.
