Did the 5k Swim in 2021
My only problem with the day is that over a day later I still haven’t received a chip time.. I don’t have a garmin so am reliant on you guys for my time. Not only that but the course was apparently 4.7km, not 5km. The Bournemouth long swim also fell well short. Showers were cold too. Lemon drizzle cake was lovely.
