Encouraging Participation Through Inspiration

We get a huge buzz being able to partake in multi-sport... It's what gets us out of bed in the morning. But equal to that is meeting people and witnessing the incredible feats they get up to, which really inspires us to push harder and explore further. This page is dedicated to those people in hope that we can also inspire others.

Our first feature tells the unique story of a group of hardy cold-water swimmers who brave the icy waters off the North East coast - all year around - in skins. In a region where the waters drop to as low as 5°, we find out how it all began and what it is about the ocean that keeps bringing them back.
