Helen and Lucy 35km Oman Swim
Monday 01 November 2021
We will be attempting to swim 35km around the Oman Peninsula. We will be based in Khasab on the Oman Headland and swimming 6-7km a day around the Oman fjords.
Training started earlier this year and has involved a mixture of pool, river and sea swimming….. and a lot of laughter and achy muscles!!
Earlier this year, we lost Adam to Motor Neurone Disease after a breath-takingly heroic battle with this incredibly cruel disease. Adam always loved to set himself extreme endurance challenges and go the extra mile, literally. During the last year of his life, when many of his muscles were failing, he cycled the equivalent of the Tour de France. Adam was a man who seized every opportunity that came his way, believed in making the most of every day and going out of his comfort zone. He would always say… “don’t just talk about your dreams, get out there and do it. Life is for living. If not now, when?” With this in mind, we are embarking on our swim challenge!!!
