Tal Y Llyn ~ The COOL MILE

02 Nov 2019

Organiser's Description

Join us for a clarity-inducing, super-cold, 1 mile swim. 

Tal Y Lyn is a stunning glacial ribbon lake that lies at the foot of one of Wales' most iconic mountains, Cadair Idris, in the heart of Snowdonia National Park.

EARLY BIRD ENTRY: £30; LATE ENTRY: £35 

£2 from each entry will go to Surfers Against Sewage

WATER TEMPERATURE

Expect the water temperature in the lake to be around 6°C to 8°C. The temperature varies depending on the preceeding weather. We will keep you updated on the water temperature in the days leading up to the event.

THE COURSE

​For safety reasons the course will be a 500m lap. There will be a 55m swim to get to the start of the first lap, and to get to the finish after the third lap. The Maths: (3 x 500m) + (2 x 55m) = 1610m = 1 mile!

Hot Ribena available after each lap.

WETSUIT or SKINS swimmers welcome. Please don't enter if you don't have previous experience of similar time spent in similar water temperatures.

Please note that in the highly unlikely event that any swim is cancelled due to extreme conditions which include very high winds, ice, or dense fog impeding the view of the swimmers by the safety cover, we will endeavour to arrange an alternative swim, or date.
