Poll: Are you taking part in a swim or run on Christmas Day?

What way will you celebrate the day – moving, or not moving?

IT HAS BEEN so mild this December that the idea of a Christmas Day dip seems almost pleasant. Almost.

Sea swims and brisk runs seem to have become more common during the pandemic, especially when there was little else we could do. There are a number of groups that organise Christmas Day excursions, sometimes for charity, sometimes just for ‘fun’. 

So we’re asking: Are you planning to take part in a swim or run on Christmas Day?

Poll Results:

No (7885)
Yes (2117)
I don't know (571)
