Welcome to the first ever Bluetit Summer Challenge! To celebrate our gradual escape to cold water freedom, we’ve set a challenge to complete a whole range of fun swims over the next few months to escape to freedom!
The challenge kicks off with an act of kindness on May 1st.
You’ll receive a Path To Freedom with swim ideas along the way, as well as a patch and badge at the end of the challenge.
From bringing a cake to a swim to double-dipping in one day, this challenge will ensure you experience the best Bluetit summer EVER! Get creative, welcome new dippers, or swim in a new location. How many you tick off is absolutely up to you – this is a guide to enjoying Bluetit freedom.
When does the challenge run?
The official start date of the challenge is May 1st, and the challenge will run until September 30th 2021.
What do I get?
You’ll be sent a PDF of your path to freedom to print out and fill in as you go, as well as entry into our Arctic Flappers Challenge Facebook group, where you can join in the fun and share photos of your swims. When the challenge ends, you’ll receive a patch and a badge!
Do I have to be part of a Bluetit flock to enter?
No! As long as you make sure you have a friend with you, all of the swims can be done as part of a Bluetit flock or not.
Do I have to complete all of the swims? There’s a couple I won’t be able to do!
Our challenges are all about encouraging you to get out there and enjoy the water in whatever way you can and feel able to. Yes, we’re about challenging our limits together, but we are also about having fun! This challenge is yours to complete in any way you see fit, and you will receive your patch and badge at the end whatever happens!
