The Ice Sevens is a challenge that consist of completing an Ice Mile, ratified by IISA in each of the Seven continents on earth. The Mile can be in inland water-mass 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 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)
As a reminder:
Water temp must be 5C or below on each of the three thermometers required.
A video clip of entry into the water, part of the swim, and teh finish - is now mandatory
An valid ECG must be uploaded in each swimmer BIO
A valid medical insurance
A valid Medical Check [which includes an ECG]
Notification to IISA of an Extreme Ice Mile is required
The 7 continents are:
Asia (Including Russia)
Europe (Excluding Russia)
Polar (South of 60S or North of 70N)
IISA Morocco is the best option for any swimmer to help you accomplish you African leg of the Ice Seven.
