Outdoor Challenge

We are blessed with a small number of heated outdoor swimming pools across Ireland and the Swim for a Mile Outdoor Challenge utilises these annually between June and August. The Outdoor Challenge runs in the same format as the Indoor Challenge, but swimmers get to experience the open air during their training and on event day. Even in an Irish Summer, you’ll be kept cosy in the heated water!

Coached training will be available during the 8-10 weeks of build up to the events taking place in August. Training is open to those aged 12 years and over who can comfortably swim 2 x 25m lengths of a pool. On event day, you will be greeted by supportive staff who will be with you throughout your swim, counting your laps and cheering you on! SFAM events are all about completing the mile or half mile at your own pace with all the support you need!
