Great North Swim

Great North Swim 2020!

Get a feel for the open water

We have a few spaces in the 1 mile open water swim. 

Hosted at Brockhole on Windermere, it’s a fantastic weekend of open water swimming in the stunning Lake District. Enjoy a weekend in the great outdoors with friends and family and help support our work at the same time.

The 1 mile is suitable for swimmers of all abilities and is equivalent to 64 lengths of a standard 25m pool. The average completion time is approx 40 minutes. You can choose to enjoy a leisurely breaststroke while taking in the scenery or kick into crawl for a faster time.

To join our team, we ask for a non-refundable registration fee of £25 and we have a minimum fundraising target of £250. We'll get you a Shine swimming cap and be there to support you throughout your training.
