The Mullany Fund supporter Catrin Jones is taking on the Great Scottish Swim Challenge to raise money for the Mullany Fund.
The Great Scottish Swim is part of the Great Swim series that consists of 5 open water swimming challenges across the UK. The Great Scottish Swim is Scotland’s biggest outdoor swimming event.
It is an unique 2km swim down the entire length of Strathclyde loch situated in Strathclyde Country Park, the venue of the 2014 Commonwealth Games triathlon. The swim takes place on 24th September 2011.
Unlike an indoor swimming pool, a stretch of open water is a wild and uncontrolled environment, which adds markedly to the challenge.
While swimming up and down a 25m pool can be boring outdoor swimming can be incredibly exciting and there’s often the added sense of battling with, and overcoming the elements.
It is a fantastic challenge and Catrin’s first ever open water event.
