Open Water Swimming Course

To regulate the number of swimmers in the water at any one time and improve the event experience for everyone, we’ve made a change to the entry system for next year’s Great North Swim. 

When you enter the event we’ll ask you to choose your distance and pick a general time slot to swim it in. We’ll then allocate specific waves six weeks before the event. You’ll get an email from us letting you know your exact swim time.

If you want to swim with someone else, we recommend making sure you enter on the same day, or register together as a group entry. If you end up in a different wave to your swim buddy, we’ll be able to accommodate changes on a first come first served basis once the waves have been allocated.

Event Location: Windermere, Lake District National Park, Windermere, LA23 1LJ
