The idea is to take people out of their comfort zone. Organiser, Ruth Hunt, says: My wish is to bring sympathetic people together, sharing stories around the campfire, waking up with the sunrise, taking a step out of their comfort zones to challenge fears and insecurities and, with the encouragement of camaraderie, run into the sea together.

The volunteering world is revelling in its freshly-polished image after the Olympics and Paeralympics, but a north-east event dependent on ordinary people giving up their free time is still well short of its target. This is surprising because all that is asked of the enthusiasts needed is to take off their clothes at sunrise in 12 days time and rush into the North Sea and then back out again.
