Monmouth Great Wye Swim 2020 - POSTPONED

This event has been POSTPONED due to the developing situation with COVID-19, please see below the communication issued to all entrants:

It is with a heavy heart I am writing to let you know that, inevitably, in line with public health advice relating to the developing Corona Virus Pandemic, the Monmouth Great Wye Swim will be postponed.

These are unprecedented times for us all, however I am sure you will understand that postponement is the necessary action to adhere to government instructions and advice to ensure the continued safety and well-being of all participants and organisers.

Going forward I’ll continue to monitor the situation and will work hard to reschedule the Monmouth Great Wye Swim and also the recce, for those that confirmed their place. I will communicate any changes as soon as is appropriate.

Thank you for your support and patience during these challenging times.

Stay safe and well and I look forward to swimming the wonderful Wye with you in the near future.

Angela Jones
Race Director, Monmouth Great Wye Swim
