Shake off the excess of Christmas and make a fresh start to the New Year by taking a chilly dip at Crawfordsburn Beach.
Join us at NOON for an invigorating, fun-filled swim and help us raise much needed funds for Cancer Focus NI.

Registration – £15
Car parking – Car parking is available in Crawfordsburn Country Park beside the Visitors Centre and near the beach.
What to bring – You can dip in a swimming costume, a wetsuit or even fancy dress- there will be a prize for the best fancy dress outfit!
Please bring a change of clothes and a towel for after the dip e.g. a hat, gloves, warm socks/boots and windproof layer. We would especially encourage everyone to wear a hat as it will help with preventing heat loss.
Mass Dip – The mass dip will take place at exactly NOON – make sure you’re at the beach ready to go by 11:45 am as there will be a brief safety announcement before the dip commences.
After the dip – There are toilets, changing facilities and a café at the Visitor Centre.
Sponsorship – Any sponsorship money that you have collected can be brought with you on the day or alternatively you can send it into our office at 40-44 Eglantine Avenue after the event.
