What an amazing day we had on Saturday 10th February at Bardowie Loch for the International Thrilled to be Chilled event. We had five successful swimmers complete their Ice Miles, while there were some challenging conditions for our 1k swimmers, but didn't they all do well. Our 450m & Chilly Dipper swimmers all did fabulously well too!
It was great to see so many international swimmers come along and join us and with the fantastic atmosphere on the day, it was a shame to go home.
We'd like to say a big thank you to all our volunteers, as well as the medical crews, without you we couldn't have had such a great day.
To our swimmers - well done and we hope to see you soon at one of our other 2018 events.
Comments from the Swimmers
Wow what a great weekend at International Thrilled to be Chilled 2018. Ice kilometre done. Thanks to all involved. Great safety and medical cover as usual. Oh and I also managed a wee win on the lottery last night, fingers crossed for tonight. The BHF will also benefit, thanks to all. Xx
What a day!! Completed my Thrilled to be Chilled ice swim despite the choppy and cold 3.3°C water! Thanks to all the safety crew, kayakers, paramedics and doctors for ensuring we were safe throughout and for taking such good care of me when I got out the water and my body gave in!
That's us home. Just want to thank you for today, was a fab event as usual and had a blast doing it! As I said earlier the medical side of the event was at such a high level of care. Thank you!!
So my feet are back on dry land and my fingers are still not quite my own but what a fantastic day yesterday. Huge thanks to Lavinia Leisten for being there all the way and full merit to Robert Hamilton Kirstin Hamilton and their amazing crew for a great event. I have never felt so safe considering the risk we all chose to challenge! Once again Thanks so much xxx
