We are challenging you to swim 1891m between October - December (or 76 lengths of a 25m swimming pool)

This challenge is designed to get you moving and to feel physically and mentally healthy through the dark and cold nights of winter. The benefits are endless to participating in this challenge for you, your local leisure centre and the education and safety of future generations.

RLSS UK has a proud history of helping to reducing the number of lives lost to drowning since 1891, which is where RLSS UK has taken inspiration for the 2023 Make a Splash winter challenge.

  • Entry is only £10 per person
  • Every participant will receive a medal for their achievement
  • You can even get together with a friend and share the distance

We have not set a fundraising target for this challenge as this is primarily designed to promote your own health and well-being. However, if you can fundraise for us, you will receive a free swim hat.

By raising just £75 (roughly £1 per length), you could enable us to teach water safety to a classroom of children.



"I would encourage anyone to take partIf you're unsure just go for it, your fitness will improve, and you'll love the feeling of accomplishment."

(Heather Smith, Make a Splash 2023 Ambassador)
