Due to the ongoing outbreak of Coronavirus, the Great North Swim event organisers have made the difficult decision to cancel the event due to take place in June.
Due to the ongoing outbreak of Coronavirus, the Great North Swim event organisers have made the difficult decision to cancel the event due to take place in June 2020.
We know that event day is only part of the challenge and our swimmers have probably put in a huge effort towards their training already. So, if you complete the #GreatSwimSolo challenge at home, any time between now and the weekend the event was due to take place, you will still receive your medal. Simply submit a photo showing how you have been managing to get your swimming, or any other activity, in at home on our Great Swim Solo webpage and we will post your medal to you. Look out for a further email with more detail on this and how you can claim your medal.
Thank you for your patience and continued support at this challenging time.
