Monster Swim 2014 -date tbc

On: 16/08/2014

Swim Location:

The event is held in Dores on the stunning shores of Loch Ness. Loch Ness staggeringly contains more fresh water than all the lakes in England and Wales combined! Not only is it the biggest but it the home of the legendary story of Nessie, the Loch Ness Monster. What better place could there be for a wild swim?

 

Race details :

"Big Yin"

The "Big Yin" is the longest swim of the day at 1 mile. Conditions can be challenging yet the views down the Loch are awe-inspiring and the feeling of being alone even when you are swimming with others can be exhilarating.

 

"Wee Nessie"

Wee Nessie" is a challenging 1/2 mile swim for the novice open water swimmer, but the views from the Loch are superb.

 

Who can enter?

Participants must be 16 or over to enter the Big Yin and 14 or over to enter Wee Nessie. We also suggest that if you are new to wild swimming, you attempt the "Wee Nessie" swim, a challenge in itself. Apart from that both events are open to anyone who is confident they can do the distance in open water.

Monster Swim at Loch Ness....now you can take on Nessie and raise money for a good cause at the same time!
