Hi all! I've just confirmed a charity place for the Dart 10k swim for 2017. Is anyone else planning on doing it/has done it in the past? The furthest I have swum OW in the past is 1600m...got a fair bit of work to do.

Entries open Thursday March 23rd at 7am- apparently they sell out rather quick :)

Anyway hope to hear from some windrushers soon with some useful tips, and looking forward to getting some practice in at the local ponds, lido and Friday night at JAGS :)

Well done Beth! I am planning a OW Swim calendar where everyone can enter events they are participating in to encourage other to come along or find fellow Windrushers who have the same plans - I'll add you to the list and I am sure there will be some more going!

Awesome! and good to meet you a few weeks ago. Look forward to seeing the calendar!

Hi Beth

My sister and I got tickets this morning for the Sunday 10K - which day are you swimming?

Hi Beth,

I signed up yesterday for the Dart10k (the Sunday event). It will be my first time so keen to hear any training tips you might have come across!

Great to hear some more Windrushers signed up! I'm swimming on the Sunday too which is great news :)

Booked Airbnb in Totnes for the weekend already. 

Looking forward to some group training!

Hi Beth,

I did the Dart last year, it was amazing - Totnes is gorgeous too! 

Are you a member of NOWCA? With their wrist band you can go to the Docklands at weekends and Thurs eves (DLR/cycle) or Thorpe Lake at weekends (drive/cycle) for the 1500m loops. Thorpe is really lovely despite being next to the M3 (you don't notice it with the tree coverage). West Reservoir (Finsbury Park tube) is also an option for after work swims on a Thurs eve (750m loop) or weekends. I will be driving to Thorpe over the summer so will post to lift share.

Enjoy becoming dolphin - got to be easier than the 3 peaks CX?!  ;) 

Hi Hayley! 

Thanks for this info, that is really helpful!

haha I'm not sure it is easier than 3peaks :)

Hey Tobias, is the OW swim calendar up yet?

I was wondering whether I should find a shorter OW swim event in advance of the 10k, a bit like a half marathon before the full!

Any advice very welcome.

Cheers

Hey Beth,

Don't know when the Dart 10k is but Caroline and I are planning to enter the Swim Bewl event on the July 9th, there are 5 and 10k options...

Hi all I've entered the Cotswold 5km swim on August 22nd.

There are a range of distances up to 10KM. Would be great to see some other Windies there. I should get a swim cap :)
