The Gathering in the East of Polar Bears and Penguins will be at Beccles Lido in Suffolk on Saturday 26 February from 12 midday until 2PM. The lido is partially heated to 15 degrees so swims in the lido will not count for The Challenge but we will also be able to swim in the River Waveney which has direct access from the lido and we will be able to use all of the lido facilities ( subject to showering before swimming in the lido if you've been in the river to prevent cross contamination ).
This will be an informal, fun day out of swimming with a medal and badge for everybody who takes part.
Open only to past and present participants of The Polar Bear or Penguin Challenge as we have exclusive hire of the venue.
Tickets are £10 available HERE
No competitive races but a chance to swim in a lovely setting and meet up with old and new friends.
Over 18s swimming only.
Spectators welcome ( no charge )
Entries close 23 February
