The Santa Splash will take place between 12pm and 2pm on the Sunday 24th November and all funds raised will go towards supporting the vital Loch Lomond Rescue Boat and their efforts to keep Loch Lomond safe for everyone.
Audrey Calder from LLS comments on the event: “The Santa Splash is really a bit of fun – just like a Santa Dash but in the loch instead of on land! The whole idea is that people will come along and take a brief dip in the loch dressed up in their Christmas hats and outfits to raise money for this deserving local charity.
“We’re asking people to go online and sign up to take part at https://santasplash.eventbrite.co.uk. It costs £5 to take part and the money goes straight to the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat. For those that don’t fancy running in to the loch in their bikinis and speedos, Loch Lomond Leisure have kindly donated wetsuit hire at an additional £5 with all proceeds again going directly to the charity. They’ll also be donating life boat cover and kayak paddlers to make sure everyone is super safe during the splash.
“We’ve got a maximum of 300 places available for participants this year so I’d urge anyone looking to take part to book quickly to avoid disappointment.
“Obviously because it’s so cold, we’ll have heated changing rooms on the beach so everyone can get warm straight after their dip – no matter how brief it is! And, everyone taking part will get a medal to prove they’ve braved the loch in November and supported the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat.”
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Loch Lomond Shores Santa Splash are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
