Our 5km swim is back as an end of year challenge: On Sunday December 11th we will come together to swim 5km or 100 lengths of UL’s 50M pool each.
The swim will start at 1200, leaving plenty of time for Lunch or coffee before the Munster match at 1500.
Never done it before? Don’t worry it’s very achievable.
We have a group swimming in each lane – the group will do a TT format or ‘train’ swim
Starting in the order A-B-C-D-E-F, swimming at an even pace after 100M / 2 lengths swimmer A drops to the back, and the order is now B-C-D-E-F-A, after the next 100M /2 lengths swimmer B drops back and the next leader will be C-D-E-F-A-B and so the chain continues.
The pace will be easy, it’s a challenge not a race and we will be swimming so that everyone gets a draft – it’s 5km for everyone.
There will be a short break for each swimmer after their lead when you will have 30-40 seconds to get a drink before you go to the back of the chain.
Advance sign up is essential to match the pace of swimmers, so please use this link.
Cost €10 per swimmer on the day to cover the cost, and will we also have a Charity donation box for anyone who can donate.
