New Years Day Dip in Salford Quays

January 1

Event Navigation

New Year’s Day Dip!

Date : 1st January

Location : Salford Quays

Bring in the New Year with a refreshing dip in Salford Quays! Take a leap of faith in nothing but your swimsuit*! If that’s not enough to whet your appetite you can choose to do a lap of the Quays or just stay in as long as you can stand the 5oC!

Do the Dip for Kidscan, and we’ll arrange a private changing room for your party, and a hot drink after the cold plunge…

The event is split into three rounds, with the hardened ice-cold swimmers up first and the toe dippers up last, so whatever your skill level there’s a dip for you. Entry costs £20 per person. There’s also an opportunity for under 16’s to join for £10 each, so it’s a great opportunity to get the whole family involved.

*You can wear whatever you like, but no cheating by wearing a wetsuit!
