Summer Solstice 'Virtual' Swim

Non-location specific

04.32am, 21 June 2021

Further information

We understand that swimming in big groups is tricky with COVID so the event will be a virtual swim, which means wherever you are in the UK you can join in the event from your local swimming spot. Once registered, swimmers will choose where they swim from, start practicing and fund raising all ready to take the plunge as the sun rises on the Summer Solstice. As it’s virtual you can do your swim wherever you like, sea, lake or pool and still take part in the event safely and locally. **How do I prove I took part? We are asking people to take this up as an individual challenge or with your bubble documenting your swim online, before, during or after by photo or video to verify your swim. Join other swimmers online and be part of the bigger event. Barefoot will be managing a ZOOM call where people can join in and talk about their experiences and use social media accounts to document the event. (Using the hashtag #barefootsolticeswim). We hope this will be a very social event for people across the South West of England and beyond!
