Hosted at Brockhole on Windermere, the Great North Swim is 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. PAPYRUS has some places on the 1 mile swim event.
The 1 mile is suitable for swimmers of all abilities and is equivalent to 64 lengths of a standard 25m pool. The average completion time is approx 40 minutes. You can choose to enjoy a leisurely breaststroke while taking in the scenery or kick into crawl for a faster time.
PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT IS 7-9 JUNE 2019. The organisers will allocate you with a specific wave time six weeks before the event. You’ll get an email from them letting you know your exact swim time.
