Firth of Forth Swim

Sunday 8 September 2019

If you're looking for a new swimming challenge, whilst raising funds for a very worthy cause, then consider this event. Push your swimming to the next level and start training now for this open water sea swim of 1.4 miles across the Firth of Forth. Last year the current was unprecedented adding an extra challenge.

Participants should be competent swimmers and will need to provide their own swimming kit. All swimmers are required to submit an expected completion time on application. A floatation aid is mandatory and will be provided on the day (only 'See Swim' or 'Vigour Visibility' Bags are allowed).

Take on this challenge and we'll support your fundraising efforts with a:

  • Fundraising pack
  • Sponsorship forms
  • Collection tins
  • Venture Trust swimming cap
  • Venture Trust performance t-shirt (on raising £100)
All we ask that you raise a minimum of £150 vital sponsorship to Support Venture Trust's work.

Organisers Vigour Events are passionate about encouraging people to get involved in open water swimming and more information about the support they can provide as you prepare for your swim, including a fantastic blog, are available through their website. More information about the Firth of Forth Swim can be found here.
