Viperfurt – DLRG OG Wipperfürth eV is organizing a 24-hour pool in Walter-Leo-Schmitz-Bad in Wipperfürth from September 3rd (start: 10:00 am) to September 4th (end: 10:00 am). Participants must swim at least 50 meters and receive at least one certificate. The entrance fee is 5 euros. Admission is free thanks to the support of the Hanseatic city of Viperfurt. You can start or swim as many times as you like in a 24-hour period, and your swim lengths will be added to the total distance at the end.
Those participants who swim the longest distance in their age group are especially honored. There are prizes for the average longest route for a family (1st class, 2 people) and for a club or group, in the category of groups of 3 or more and groups of 8 or more. The group with the maximum number of participants also receives a special price, regardless of the route. In addition, the youngest and oldest participants are honored. Between 2:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m., a separate night-time evaluation will record the longest journey during this period and an additional winner will be determined. BEW Bergische Energie- und Wasser-GmbH also offered special prizes for Wipperfürther. Details about age groups and rankings can be found at wipperfuerth.dlrg.de
If you want to relax, you can set up your own tent in the outdoor area of the pool. There is also an opportunity to relax in the bathroom. We take care of your physical well-being in the form of small snacks and suitable music while swimming. The work of “Zone calculators” is carried out professionally and digitally using tablet computers. The big advantage is that the personal contact between the participants and the line counters is maintained, and at the same time the evaluation and live streaming are faster and more up-to-date. The calculation process is safer, with us you don’t swim in an uncounted zone. Registration takes place on site, no pre-registration is required. Participation and registration is possible at any time within 24 hours.
