Swim your way to greatness

If you love water and live in the UK, then the Great Swim should definitely be in your calendar. Since launching with the Great North Swim in 2008, the series is now the UK’s biggest open water swimming event with 5 events taking place in clean lakes, lochs and urban docks around the UK. It’s open to swimmers of all abilities, so anyone can compete in these extraordinary locations alongside no lesser talents than Olympic champions. In 2016 we’ll be making a splash at Windermere in Cumbria, Alton Water in Suffolk, Salford Docks in Manchester, Loch Lomond in Scotland and the Royal Victoria Dock in Newham, Central London. So don’t hesitate – grab your wet suit or trunks and jump in to the best thing you’ll do this year.
