Entry fees have been structured to fit most swimmers pockets and ranges from Level 1 – being the cheapest to Level 5 – being the most expensive, depending on the date of the entry.

Lastly to encourage older folk to join in the health benefits of open water swimming, pensioners will now receive 20% discount on all entry fees. A lovely high quality black towel will be available for sale with entries again this year
