A Mixed Bag Challenge of all things involving cold water from open water swimming to cold showers and ice baths. Will you take the plunge? This is a version of The Original. It is an open water winter swim challenge involving swimming/dipping over as many days as you can manage over five months in swimsuit or shorts. You can also wear neoprene socks, gloves or hat.
When the Chatter Challenge was first launched in 2020, the only subscription was The Original. This is a purely open water swim/dip challenge with no alternatives such as ice baths/cold showers.
If you think that you may want to complete your personal challenge using ice baths or cold showers in addition to swimming in open water, then The Mixed Bag may be suitable option for you.
Whilst The Original is open water only, this is an alternative option that you may wish to consider. If you think that you may want to complete your personal challenge using ice baths or cold showers in addition to swimming in open water, then The Mixed Bag may be suitable option for you.
Mixed Bag Award Levels
Similar to the other challenges, there will be different levels of award depending on how many swims/dips you manage through the Challenge. Therefore, there will be Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond awards. We celebrate them all! The details are on the FAQ page.
Like the other Challenge subscriptions, you are asked to check in to Facebook to post a photo or video of your daily exploits. Chatter will put regular posts on Instagram.
Best of luck!
