GREAT SWIM - Open water swimming events

Since its first event in 2009, The Great Swim Series has grown into the largest open water swimming event series in the UK. With 22,000 competitors and 50,000 spectators, the series aims to challenge, engage and activate swimmers of all levels.

Our Swims offer people of all abilities the chance to get active and and raise thousands of pounds for charity.

We encourage people, young and old, to get fit and active – supporting them to lead healthier and happier lives. We make a positive difference to cities, local communities and individuals – we make them FEEL GREAT.
