Europe’s biggest open water swimming event with around 10,000 participants returns to Windermere for a weekend of events. Fantastic weekend of open water swimming in the stunning Lake District. We are offering charity places for the 1 mile distance.
Over three days, participants of all abilities take the plunge in stunning Lake Windermere over a range of distances. The event also features thrilling elite races with some of the world’s best swimmers. Based in the picturesque surroundings of the Lake District National Park, the Great North Swim is an inspiring outdoor swim.
Diving into Lake Windermere is an experience like no other. However, remember that this is England we are talking about and, June or not, you will need a wetsuit. Other than that, the Great North Swim is a totally natural affair: No lanes, no chlorine - just you, your wetsuit, your goggles and the open water.
Kayakers and safety boats are dotted around the course for your peace of mind while swimming with so many others means you’re never short of support.
