Hosted at Brockhole on Windermere, it’s a fantastic weekend of open water swimming in the stunning Lake District.

With distances to suit all levels and abilities you can enjoy a weekend in the great outdoors with friends and family. Take your pick from 250 metres, 1/2 a mile, 1 mile, 2 miles, 5k or a 10k...

To regulate the number of swimmers in the water at any one time and improve the event experience for everyone, there are changes to the entry system for Great North Swim 2019. 

When you enter the 2019 event you'll to choose your distance and pick a general time slot to swim it in. You will then be allocated 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. To do this all you need to do is; create an initial account and complete the online entry form. Before paying you can then click group entry in the top right corner. Here, you can register the rest of the group you’d like to swim with. Once everyone is registered you can proceed to payment and complete all entries in a single transaction. This will ensure all swimmers in a group are allocated the same start time.

If you don’t register as a group and are allocated a different wave to your swim buddy, we’ll be able to accommodate changes once the waves have been allocated but this will be on a first come first served basis.
