About Great North Swim

Lots of us already know how great it can feel to get out into green spaces and take some exercise.

Add to that the chance to achieve your goals, and raise money to change the lives of people experiencing mental health problems, and you have a truly memorable day.

Experience this incredible open water event, in the stunning location of Lake Windermere, in the heart of the Lake District.

It'll be a great day, with its picture perfect location, fantastic atmosphere and the great morale of all the swimmers who take part.

Swimming feels great!
