Repost from The Women’s Adventure Expo Blog by Alice Gartland:

Win a years subscription to Outdoor Swimmer Magazine and a kit bag full of swim gear from Zoggs.

A Lotus Rises is  very excited to be delivering our Guide to Open Water Swimming at WAExpo 2017, the annual flagship event of the Women’s Adventure Expo CIC. Never afraid to tackle the important issues, we’ve got together with Outdoor Swimmer Magazine and Zoggs to try and answer one of the toughest questions in open water swimming – What makes the best #SwimSelfie? and support you on your swim adventures, whatever they may be!

Submit your pics to @WAEXPO and @ALotus_Rises with the hashtag #swimselfie, for the chance to win a year’s subscription to Outdoor Swimmer Magazine, a Kit Bag full of swim gear from Zoggs (1 x swim cozzie from a choice of three (size 8-20), the excellent predator goggles, swim hat, ear plugs, and towel), and 2 tickets to WAExpo 2017 held in Bristol on 7th October to inspire you on your swim adventures. Competition closes on Monday 2nd October.

The WAExpo 2017 will feature workshops and talks on all aspects of outdoor adventures, including talks from Beth French, SUP adventurer and ocean advocate Cal Major and Endurance Athlete Anna McNuff – it’s going to be awesome!

The underwater #SwimSelfie – breathing and timing is critical.

We love swimming!

A Lotus Rises is on a mission to increase visibility, access and participation of women in swimming. Our first collaborative workshop is at the Women’s Adventure Expo on 7th October.  Whether you’re returning to the pool, learning to swim or embarking on the English Channel we will be exploring all that open water has to offer with insights from across our women’s swimming collective and scientific contributions from the international institute of swim cake studies.
