On Wednesday, August 21st join This Way, Adventure Uncovered and Outdoor Swimmer magazine for the second ‘Evenings to Explore’ event, a mid-week swim in Hampstead Heath ponds plus a post-dip picnic in the park.
**Due to the new opening hours of the ponds we need to be out of the water by 7:30 pm at the latest. Please aim to arrive on time to ensure you're in the water, submerged and having fun by 7 pm**
6:15 pm - Meet at Hampstead Heath Boating pond. For those coming via Gospel Oak and need help to find the location, we’ll have someone at The Mutt Hut to walk you up at 6:00 pm.
6.30 - 6:45 pm ~ After some quick intros, the team at Outdoor Swimmer magazine will lead us through open swimming techniques and things to think about whilst in the water.
6:45 - 7:30 pm ~ Split into groups to swim in the Ladies' and Men's ponds. (Unfortunately, the mixed ponds close at 6.30 pm so this option gives us more flexibility on time).
7:45 - 9:00 pm ~ Change and re-group for a post-swim picnic and chat by the boating lake.
