Swim 100 x 100s with the Outdoor Swimmer team

We’ve booked a few lanes at Charlton Lido for a classic 100 x 100m (or as many 100s as you can manage in 4 hours) swim challenge. This is primarily for members of our Million Metre Challenge Facebook group but is open to anyone who wants to challenge themselves to a 10km pool swim and meet and swim with some of the Outdoor Swimmer team. Afterwards we will go the pub to recover and chat about swimming. Jo and Simon from the Outdoor Swimmer team will be there to answer your questions about Channel swimming and open water racing.

Please note, this is not a coached session. You will be expected to self-manage within each lane.

Early March is a great time to start increasing your distance as towards the end of March and into April, big swims start coming thick and fast, such as Swimathon Triple 5k, the Guildford 12, and Channel swim qualifiers.

It’s also a fab challenge in it’s own right. It’s a great way to conquer a 10k swim, and it’s all the more fun to do with like-minded folk.

Water temperature is expected to be between 25 and 27 degrees. Wetsuits are optional.

Clif are providing nutrition. We will also be holding a prize draw with a few goodies to give away including a Selkie bag.

Entry cost is £30 or £27 for subscribers to Outdoor Swimmer magazine.

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
