Great North Swim

Friday 8th-Sunday 10th June 2018

The Great North Swim is an open water swim taking place in the serene waters of beautiful Lake Windermere.  2018 will be an exciting year for the UK’s biggest swimming event as it moves to a brand new location at Brockhole on Windermere.

Participants can take their pick from five distances - ½ mile, 1 mile, 2 miles, 5km or 10km events, so there really is something for swimmers of all abilities, from first timers to seasoned pros.
