SYS are holding a number of ICE MILE SWIM attempts across the winter of 2023/24. Each Saturday swim day we will have spaces for a number of swimmers to attempt their ICE MILE – a one mile swim in water under 5ºC, wearing only one swim costume, one swim cap and a pair of goggles.
You can REGISTER your interest HERE, nearer the time we will send you a booking link and ice mile slot date ( weather dependant ) the event date on this registration is NOT your ice mile swim slot date.
To be eligible for an ICE MILE SWIM attempt with SYS a swimmer must have done the following:
- Completed an ICE MILE MEDICAL – to include an ECG test. Medicals and ECGs must be completed within 3 months of the Ice Mile swim attempt. Contact – Coire at email@example.com if you need help for a medical.
- Completed a 1km qualifying swim in water of 6ºC or below, and have this registered on your IISA bio page. Your qualifying swim must be done within one year of your Ice Mile attempt.
SYS will be running an ICE MILE QUALIFYING EVENT IN November / December 2023 so keep an eye on the website for the event date release.
