Ice Mile

Gloucester Masters swimmer Jon Coe, joins only 1 of 170 world wide swimmers and only 44 English swimmers to have swum the “Ice Mile” under the International Ice Swimming Association rules. That is only regular swim trunks, one swim hat and goggles and water temperature at 5 degrees or lower. The swim took place at Lake 32 South Cerney (Cirencester) on Saturday morning the 28th Feb 2015. The lake was a dead 5 degrees and the wind chill was -2 . To be counted as an official swim, there were 3 digital thermometers and two witness from the IISA and photographic proof of entry and exit.  The swim is not over till you have recovered (and trust me that is the hardest part!).  The chilly morning was great for the swim!
