2021 Swim Challenge Info

Complete either 2021 meters or 20.21 km of swimming between 1st day and the last day of any month in 2021. The faster you complete the distance, the higher your position in the results table! Challenge awards are a commemorative challenge coin with stand, woven swim badge and completion certificate. The distance can be completed in any number of sessions within one calendar month. You can swim in a pool or in open water, indoors or outdoors, wetsuits or non-wetsuit - additional accessories such as gloves/boots etc are permitted. Wherever you love to swim!

Selecting your distance option

When purchasing you will select the distance option of your choice. When completing the submissions form please select the correct distance options you are working toward. We will create 2 results tables - one for each distance - on the challenge page. Please note you will only be included in the results table for the distance option you chose. Your swim month will also be shown in the table and you will select the month when you submit your results.

Awards

For successful completion of this 2021 Swim challenge you will receive a commemorative challenge coin and a woven swim badge which will be sent to you by post (postage is free within the UK). All awards will be sent to the address on your account by 14th of the month following your challenge. Please visit the My Account page to make any amendments to your details. Awards are not guaranteed - they are sent only on successful completion of the challenge distance and submission of your results by the deadline.

Recording your results

Record your swim date, distance in meters and swim time in hh:mm:ss. You can use a fitness watch or tracker such as a Garmin or on a fitness app to measure the distance/time of your swim. You may also record your swim details manually; at a swim venue they will likely provide you with information such as course/lane distance or you can estimate it using google maps for outdoor venues. These challenges rely on honesty and we expect all entrants to be honest with their own results.

If you swim at a NOWCA venue such as Race Hub in official sessions then your swim data including the distance, time, temperature of your swim are recorded on your NOWCA profile after each swim. You can retrieve this data by logging in to your personal swim page where a record of your swims can be found. We suggest that you check that your data has been recorded properly after each swim as technical or human errors cannot be corrected.

Submissions and Results

You must submit your final results by the 5th of the month following your challenge. So if you complete in January 2021 your submissions must be completed by 5th Feb. You will need to use our 2021 swim challenge online submissions form to inform us of your session details. Please ensure you select the correct distance option. We will need the date of your swim, the distance swam in meters and how long you swam for. The form can be found both on the submissions page and also will be sent to you via email when you sign up and in a reminder email. The results table will be on the 2021 Swim Challenge page. The results position for the challenge is determined by time.  We would love you to share a photo of you or your results on our Facebook page! If you don't complete the distance you selected and/or submit your results by the deadline, you will not receive your awards or appear in the results table.

Our challenges are honesty based and require you to accurately and honestly record and submit your own results.
