We did it.
Swim the Cam took place last Saturday as 35 swimmers took to the water. Despite the cold water and abundance of reed, everybody completed this open water event with smiling faces.
The event revives a competition which once attracted about 200 swimmers to the city’s river and could, like swims of the past, become an annual fixture.
“The response has been amazing,” says Jo Black, one of four volunteers organising Swim the Cam ‘17. “We’re hoping it will become a regular fixture in the open water swimming calendar.”
