The BIG Shiver


Friday 10 May 2019

 

Friday 10 May saw the second Big Shiver take place at Europe's biggest unheated outdoor pool, the Jesus Green Lido! 

Even though we had sunny spells and a mild spring day, unlike last year, the water was a cold 8 degrees centigrade.   

28 participants took part, taking on distances as little as 2 lengths of the 91 meter pool to swimming for an hour in the chilly conditions! Two of our participants were even brave enough to dive straight in!  The swimmers then warmed up with a leek and potato soup and collected their certificate for taking part. 

Thank you to everyone who was brave enough to get in the pool, to all those who came and supported the swimmers and also to Better for allowing us to host the event at the Lido (visit www.better.org.uk/leisure-centre/cambridge/jesusgreenlido)! We look forward to seeing you in 2020!
