Hi I'm Jacqui at Chatter Challenge. I started open water swimming in the summer of 2020. As soon as I realised that I loved it, I felt that I needed an incentive to continue through the winter. When others said that they needed it too, thus, the Chatter Challenge was created.
Consequently, due to how much fun the Tribe had over that first winter season, we realised that there was a place for it in the winter open water swim/dip challenge world.
It is an exciting challenge which runs from 1st November to the 31st March (although we did a 365 Ultimate Challenge in 2023/24) encompassing fun, friendship, community, raising money for charity and superb free kit. The idea is to dip as often as you can over the five month winter period.
