Bantham Swoosh and Dart 10K return in 2022 with new organisers

After a couple of years away, the much-loved Bantham Swoosh and Dart 10K will be returning in 2022, with tickets being released in the next few weeks.

The events will now be run by Swim Collective, the new event arm of charity Level Water which aims to improve access to swimming in the UK through one-to-one swimming lessons for children with disabilities.

Previously organised by the Outdoor Swimming Society, the events will continue their brilliant legacy as some of the most popular swim events in the UK. The outdoor swimming society will continue to be involved in the events, and will be hosting a stand at each to greet swimmers.

Dates for your diaries:

  • Bantham Boomerang – Friday 15th July
  • Bantham Swoosh (and mini Swoosh) – Saturday 16th July
  • Dart10k – 3/4th September

The all-new Bantham Boomerang will challenge swimmers to see how far they cans wim before the tide turns. The swim starts at Bantham, with swimmers heading upriver on the incoming tide. When the tide turns, so do the swimmers, swooshing back into Bantham beach and the finish line.

Keep an eye on OSS’ social media and the Swim Collective website for ticket release details.
