36th Annual Walrus Dip
Brave the chill and join us for the 36th annual Walrus Dip at Pembrey Country Park!
Join hundreds of others and take a dip in the sea on Boxing Day to raise money for a cause close to your heart, but if you’re not brave enough come along anyway to witness this crazy and spectacular event!
The Walrus Dip was established in 1984, and has run every year since, except on two occasions - one due to an oil spill another when the sea froze over! People of all ages take part for a variety of charities, with most donning fancy dress and colourful Christmas costumes.
Participants and spectators should arrive at the park by 10.30am latest, and be at the starting line by 10.45am (due to tidal conditions there is likely to be a 10-minute walk to the start line from the main entrance to Cefn Sidan Beach). – the amount of time you spend in the sea is entirely up to you! The event is supported by the RNLI, Coastguard & St John's Ambulance who will both be on duty throughout the event.
Participation is free, and certificates will be handed out to all participants.
Admission to Pembrey Country Park is free for the event.
* The event will only be cancelled in case of extreme weather conditions that would threaten the safety of participants and spectators, or in event of an emergency.
