Do you have 20 seconds a day
Coldtober is back for a third year, and this time they're making waves—literally—all over Ireland. Last year’s month-long cold water challenge was so heart-pounding, so liberating, and so much fun that it went NATIONAL. The challenge is an annual fundraiser for Helplink Mental Health. Over the past two years over 900 of you took part in Coldtober to try and do 31 days of cold dips or cold showers.
This year, Helplink are leaving it up to you to do as many cold dips (in safe outdoor swimming spots) and/or cold showers (20 seconds) as you feel comfortable with doing; you set your own goal for this challenge across October!
And Portwest – The Outdoor Shop are delighted to sponsor for another year. The first 500 of you to register will score a cozy Coldtober neck warmer from Portwest – The Outdoor Shop. Trust us; you'll want this neck warmer after emerging from the icy waters. By the way, you can wear your wetsuit and you’ll still feel the benefits of cold water.
