This is a safe and friendly event, lots of support kayakers and safety boats.
It’s a family friendly event with an event village and people often swimming to raise money for charity.

Great North Swim event info
Myself (Dave Jackson) and Assistant Head Coach Ewan Smallwood will be taking part in the 2 mile wave at 10:30. I am also taking part in the 1 mile wave prior to the half mile so will be there to watch the start and welcome in the finishers.
You can hire a wet-suit from the event for £30, and I am speaking to the endurance store based in Wrightington to see if they will offer a discounted hire for the event.
