Tying up the Open Water Season

Last weekend three Otter swimmers took part in the Outdoor Swimming Society’s Hurly Burly event. Despite the cold temperatures, both in and out of the water, the sun was out and the quick current made sure that it was a thoroughly enjoyable swim.

Gina Hobson and Sam both took part in the 10km swim, completing it in 2hrs 43mins and 1hr 35mins respectively. James Dickinson took part in the swim run, completing the 11km run in 52mins and the swim in 1hr 21mins and finishing third overall in the swim-run event. James also participated in the Serpentine six mile event the previous weekend, finishing in 2hrs 17mins and winning the event.
