Thank you to everybody who took part in, volunteered and helped at this year’s swim. The sun shone down on us. The results are here – http://dbmaxresults.co.uk/results.aspx?CId=16421&RId=30104 Next year’s swim will take place on Saturday September 12th and entries will open this week. See you next year!
The temperature in the 1500m loop is 17 degrees. In the creek it’s 15 degrees as it’s shaded. There is a 100m swim out to the start so you’ll be able to acclimatise.
Please make sure that all your kit, wetsuits and equipment is completely dry before entering the water. Unfortunately there’s been a suspected outbreak of Crayfish plague on the Cwm y Caddo, a tributary of the Monnow, and it’s essential that this isn’t spread elsewhere. It’s carried as spores on wet kit and in mud.
