We have teamed up with Better to bring you a sponsored swimming challenge with a difference! This event isn't just about how strong your front crawl is, how fast you complete a length or whether you're an aspiring Olympic swimmer...it's about facing your own chilly challenge in your local prestigious outdoor pool then celebrating with a bowl of warm soup and a roll!

Jesus Green Swimming Pool is a Lido situated on Jesus Green in Cambridge. Opened in 1923, it is one of the few remaining examples of the lidos built across the country in the 1920s — open air pools with space for activities other than swimming.
Designed to mimic the idea of swimming in the river close by, it stands at 94.6 meters long.

The Big Shiver takes place before the Lido is open to the public for the summer season, so you will have exclusive first use of the pool. Having only been freshly painted and filled days before, the water temperature is estimated to be around 8 degrees centigrade.

Open to 12+ years and swimmers must be able to swim a minimum of 25 meters
Date: Friday 11 May 2018
Time: 3pm - 6pm

The Challenge:

• Choose your own challenge; be it in lengths, meters, or minutes (e.g. 10 lengths, 100 meters or 30 minutes
• Raise sponsorship if you wish (sponsor forms available upon registration)
• Complete your challenge within one hour of entering the pool and receive a warm bowl of soup and bread roll* plus certificate of your achievement!

Price:
Adult £12.50
Child £8
