Not unpleasant. I heard different people say 17 and some say 19 - so I'll guess at 18. It felt nice and warm getting in after you've been freezing for half an hour.

Nice one to all that took part. Really enjoyed the video as well. Talking to a guy Colin Hill yesterday who is into long distance stuff. He did it it 2 years ago and he gave me a good insight into it. Not sure if it is for me though!!

I didn't realize it was every two years, shame.

It has got me thinking about organising one for next year though! We've got several Lido's that potentially could be venue's, I wouldn't want to tread on anyone's toes though as 2swim4life have done a great job with this event.

I wonder why they only decided to do it every two years?

If there's none next year from them there would be a void.

I'm sure Carl A, Mark P, You, me, repoman, grom, rob D? and more would enter to use as the simulation for enduroman

Just think, you could get your whole year's swim training done in one weekend

are there any results to be had. is it a stage race effectively, adding all your mile times?

No, no results - not even sure about numbers of starters/finishers. It's just a survival event. But my total swim time was 10:31
