Dryrobe has announced a new partnership with Kendal Mountain Festival, as the Presenting Partner of the Outdoor Swimming Session. Taking place bright and early on Sunday 17 November, the session will combine screenings of films from the world of outdoor swimming with tales of incredible adventures from inspiring characters.
The fantastic Colin Hill returns to Kendal to host the session for 2019 and share his infectious enthusiasm for outdoor swimming, plus the riotous Outdoor Swimmer Quiz of the Year is back, hosted by Jonathan Cowie and Ella Foote.
The full line-up of speakers will be revealed very soon, but the amazing speakers confirmed so far include Lindsey Cole, who will take us from Shetland to the Scilly Isles, describing her ‘Dipping Britain’ adventure. Cyclist and swimmer, Ben Dowman, will also be joining the line-up as creator of the Frog Whitton Round: a 96-mile bike ride with four lake swims totalling six miles.
Gideon Bright, dryrobe founder and Director, commented: “We’re proud to be joining the Kendal Mountain Festival to present the Outdoor Swimming Session – here at dryrobe our mission is to help inspire, enable and improve the experience of an active outdoor lifestyle, for everyone. Kendal embraces and shares this ethos wholeheartedly, which is why we’re excited to be working together with them for 2019. We can’t wait to see the amazing outdoor swimming community at the festival – see you there!”
The dryrobe Outdoor Swimming Session takes place 9.30-11.30am on Sunday 17 November, at Kendal Town Hall.
