The Channel Challenge
September 24 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm
No need to go to Dover or Calais to swim the distance of the English Channel – on Saturday 24 September 2022 Bude Sea Pool invite experienced swimmers to form a team of two or more to swim a total of 22 miles over the whole day.
Our annual Channel Challenge is now a key event in the Bude Sea Pool calendar and has become one of our biggest fundraisers – contributing vital funds to help keep our beloved pool open and safe.
We welcome teams from all over the UK – some might be in training for an attempt at the real channel, some perhaps just looking for a great challenge towards the end of the open water summer season, others might just be keen to have a dip in our iconic pool and raise some money while they’re at it! Whatever you reason, we’re looking forward to welcoming you on September 24th
Time: first swimmer starts 7am. Last swimmer out by 6pm
Total distance: 22 miles (440 lengths of the pool)
