LIDL SWIM CHALLENGE

The LIDL Swim Challenge races take place from the Praia da Ribeira, in the middle of the bay of Cascais. Cascais is a former fishing village that has a history dating back more than 650 years. It is the former summer residence of both Portuguese and foreign royalty. A superb site, with white sand beaches, and innumerable activities - in which all the family can take part - available to it, make this race location incomparable.

THE CHALLENGES

1Km / 1.9Km / 3.8Km

The 1km, 1.9 km and 3.8 km races are open to all and wetsuit use is permitted. The 3.8 km swim constitutes a challenge that necessitates a fair amount of prior training to be accomplished, and is therefore recommended for experienced athletes only. Solely swimmers who are accredited with their respective open water swimming federation, and pre-acclimatised to the prevailing conditions, may undertake the swim without wearing a wetsuit.

KIDS - 200m / 400m

The experience that no child shall ever forget- swimming in open water. Being in direct contact with the forces of nature, whilst learning to respect the sea, should be great for your child´s self-esteem. The self-belief that he or she acquires through sport will spill over into other areas of his or her life. Accompanied by an adult or within healthy competition, it is here that your child will gain his or her “gills!”
