2HR & 6HR LONG DISTANCE SWIM EVENT
7TH MAY 2022

2hr and 6hr Qualifying Swim Event

ABILITY LEVEL: Competent open water swimmers only.
LAKE WATER TEMP: Expected to be between 13-14 degrees celcius

2 hour, 2.5hr and 6 hour long distance open water swim training sessions now available at the Ocean Walker Crystal Lake in Lincolnshire. Perfect for channel swimmers and long distance open water event swimmers in training.

Limited numbers for this event.

CHANNEL QUALIFYING SWIMS
For channel relay teams and for channel solo swimmers. Our 2 hour, 2.5 hour and 6 hour swim session gives you the opportunity to get some serious long distance training in prior to your big day. Actual qualifying certificates are completely dependent on the water temperature at the time of the event and if you are attending for this purpose ensure you book the correct relay qualifier as CSA requires the 2hr swim and CS&PF now require 1.5hrs swim, 1hr out the water and an additional 1 hours swim. It is your responsibility to book the swim session that is right for you.
If you attend a summer event, then this would be classed as a training swim only as the water temp will be too high.
Adam Walker advises you get plenty of distance training under your belt so you are ready to rock on the day of your swim.

LONG DISTANCE TRAINING
For wetsuit and non-wetsuit open water swimmers who have an event coming up that requires extra time spent in the water, or for those who don't have an event, but want to work on their own personal swim endurance. You will be presented a certificate following your swim detailing the conditions and swimwear you wear on the day. If you are training for a long distance swim event and require certification, please check the requirements and ensure you adhere to these for your actual swim session.

WHAT DO YOU GET?
EXCLUSIVE CERTIFICATE signed by Adam 'Ocean' Walker
OCEAN WALKER SWIM CAP
ADMISSION FOR 1 SWIM BUDDY/HELPER INCLUDED

All swimmers will be presented with an exclusive certificate of completion at the presentation and signed by Adam Walker as a recognised long distance swim, as well as an Ocean Walker Swim Cap. The certificate will only be accepted as a channel qualifier if the water temp is as required for your chosen Channel Swim federation.

SWIMMERS BUDDY
Each swimmer has the option to bring their own swim buddy. A swim buddy is someone over the age of 18, who is assiting you train and understands you as a swimmer. They have a very important role during your swim, of feeding you during your swim and ensuring your safety by reporting any concerns immediately to a member of the OWA team on the day. The swim buddy must come with you in the same vehicle (to manage our car park numbers), and we will need their name and details provided upon booking your place.
Each swimmer is allowed 1 swim buddy included in their fee.
If you would like to bring an additional spectator (as well as your swim buddy) they will be required to pay £3 in cash on the day to enter. We do not require their name, but they MUST arrive with you and sign in with you - we cannot accept spectators arriving in separate vehicles at separate times.
If you opt not to bring a swim buddy with you and require regular feeds, you have to wear a tow float to carry your bottle so you can feed yourself. (Bottles not to be left on the side).

LIFEGUARDS ON DUTY
Our qualified open water lifeguards at the Ocean Walker Academy will be stationed around the lake and keeping watch over the event. Providing water safety and first aid support. Our team are not providing drinks/feeds to swimmers (see notes above about swim buddies).
