Spring Scilly Swim Challenge

Swim island to island on the beautiful Isles of Scilly. 15km over 6 swims.

This is a non-competitive challenge event.

Back for the third year, the Spring event follows the same format as the original one day event but a little colder - a full day taking 11-12 hours to complete. If you like a challenge and can consistently swim 34 minute miles (21min/km) or faster this is for you.

  • Friday afternoon/evening registration, briefing and acclimatisation swim.
    • Registration is between 1500 & 1630 with an acclimatisation swim and safety briefing at 5.30. These are compulsory so please be at registration by 1630.
  • Start early Saturday. The day involves a swim between the 6 major islands with a walk on each to connect to the next swim start.​
  • Sunday is a contingency day in case of bad weather on the Saturday. Otherwise relax!
  • Sunday evening - party time!

(Please note we may have to change the schedule to take account of weather and tides.)

Anticipated water temperature is 13.

This is no longer a fully catered event, however snacks and hot drinks will be provided and packed mini hampers will be available to purchase in advance (or bring your own).

(Please note that we cannot guarantee that you will be finished in time to travel back to the mainland on the day of the event. There is no transport off the islands on the Sunday.)  

Minimum age 16

If you are not able to come to the event and wish to cancel we will refund 50% of the fee up to four months before the event. After that no refunds or deferrals are available. We strongly encourage you to take out insurance to cover any costs incurred by you such as event fees, travel and accommodation. We recommend Sportscover Direct.
