Great North Swim 2022


Be Part of the Open Water Swimming Family


Join #TeamHenry at the Great North Swim on Friday 10th June – Sunday 12th June 2022 – and help us be there for every child with cancer.

The Great North Swim is a fantastic weekend of open water swimming in the stunning Lake District surroundings. The event offers a family friendly atmosphere, spectacular swimming action and an unbeatable sense of achievement as you step out of the water and cross the finish line. Make a weekend of it, and enjoy the popular event village at Brockhole, complete with exhibitor stands, pop-up food stalls and activities & games for all ages.
