Great North Swim

Friday 9 - Sunday 11 June 2023

The Great North Swim is a weekend-long celebration of open water swimming. Expect stunning scenery, the best of local food and drink, outdoor activities, culture, art, history and thousands of like-minded people coming together. Think of it more as an open water adventure than a race.

With six different open water swimming distances to suit all ages, abilities and experience, there’s an option for you! 

On your marks, get set, go! To take part in the Great North Swim, sign up here. Once you are signed up, don’t forget to start fundraising by setting up a JustGiving page. We can provide full fundraising support, along with sending you branded materials, including a Duchenne UK swimming cap, to help you with your fundraising.
