6am Monday 21st September to Midnight Sunday 27th September
What is it all about?
The LiveLighter ‘Swim to Everest’ virtual meet will open from 6am Monday 21st September to midnight Sunday 27th September. The concept is as follows:
- Swimmers take part in a team as a duo, trio or foursome to complete the total distance of 8,850m – the height of Everest
- People can swim their own programmes but for those needing a little assistance, we’re providing the programmes below. They can be sum as many times as teams would like during the ‘Spring Equinox’ week.
- The idea is that people share the lead – the ‘equal’ part of Equinox
- No points competition for this meet but the winner of the most creative ‘summit’ photo or video will win a prize.
- Don’t forget to pick a TEAM NAME before you register
$300 Voucher for the most creative ‘summit’ team picture or video
Take a picture or video of your team as you complete your summit of Everest. The most creative picture or video submitted will win a $300 Visa Voucher for the team. There is only one prize.
Please email your photo/video to firstname.lastname@example.org
Tarquin and Sophie will determine the winner based on the most creative picture or video. The judges’ decision will be final and no appeals entered into.
