Great North Swim Video

When you see ‘swimming’, what do you think of? Warm sandy beaches and crystal clear water? Community pools with lanes, angry lifeguards and floating plasters (yuck!)? 

Well, it’s time to change all that! The Great North run is hosted in the picturesque Lake District. This action-packed weekend of open water swimming has distances for everyone – from 250 metres to 10km – so the whole family can get immersed in the great outdoors. Not a lane in sight!

This is an experience to write home about. Battle the elements and become one with nature.

Prices range from £15 to £85 and is being held the weekend beginning 7thJuly - see event details
