The Ice Sevens Challenge

Apr 2016

A joint venture between WOWSA and IISA to create a Frozen Challenge

IISA Admin, 28 April 2016

The Ice Sevens is a challenge created by WOWSA in the same fashion it created the massive Ocean swims challenge - the Ocean Sevens.

To read about the challenge see: ICE SEVENS

The Challenge is simple:

Complete an Ice Mile, ratified by IISA in each of the Seven continents on earth. The Mile can be inland or at its shores, whatever freezes you better.

Since some of us are closer to the North Pole than the South Pole - we allowed for an Arctic Swim at 70 North or further North to be the equivalent of of a 60 South or further South Antarctic mile.

And the ICING on the cake is: One of the Seven Ice Miles must be an ICE ZERO mile (water temp sub 1C)

IISA has tightened its ICE MILE rules (to be on the website soon) to allow for better documentation of each attempt. 

As a reminder:

  1. Water temp must be 5C or below on each of the  three thermometers required.
  2. A video clip of entry into the water, part of the swim, and teh finish - is now mandatory
  3. An valid ECG must be uploaded in each swimmer BIO
  4. A valid medical insurance
  5. A valid Medical Check [which includes an ECG]
  6. Notification to IISA of an Extreme Ice Mile is required

IISA will present the ICE Sevens table on its Website, in due course. 

GOOD LUCK to all and BE SAFE.
