Are there any prizes for the fastest swimmers?

The events are not races – the focus is on having fun! However, age group prizes are available for participants taking part in the final two-mile wave of the day (classed as the ‘fast wave’) and the half-mile event for youths. Special age group medals will then be posted out after the event to the top three male and female finishers in the following age group categories:

  • Two-mile swim (final ‘fast wave’): 18-24, then all five-year age bands up to 75+
  • Half-mile swim: 12-14 and 15-17 age bands
