This fun and friendly open water swimming event will have waves throughout the day. Swimmers with disabilities are welcome and if you’d like to fundraise as part of your swim, charity places are also available. All finishers will receive a medal after their swim, as well as a souvenir swim hat to wear on the day!

The event has an amazing carnival atmosphere, which you’ll know if you’ve been before. Alongside the open water events, there will be a range of stands to enhance your open water swimming experience.

You’ll be able to meet the Outdoor Swimmer team at the event and, once you’ve signed up, you’ll receive an exclusive newsletter packed with open water swimming advice, training ideas and inspirational interviews with swimmers just like you.
