Great Scottish Swim start

The Great Swims are the UK's most popular outdoor swims, with over 20,000 people taking part in 2014. With no lanes or chlorine, they are a fantastic opportunity to swim outdoors in historic and scenic locations across the UK, whilst raising money for Aspire. Distances include half a mile, one mile, two miles and 5km, so there is a swim to suit everyone's ability.

There will be five Swims in 2015:

• Great North Swim in Windermere, Lake District - Friday 12th to Sunday 14th June 2015

• Great East Swim in Alton Water, Suffolk - Saturday 20th June 2015

• Great Manchester Swim in Salford Quays, Manchester - Saturday 4th July 2015

• Great London Swim in Millwall Dock - Saturday 18th July 2015

• Great Scottish Swim at Loch Lomond - Saturday 29th August 2015

Each swim takes place in a safe an supervised environment.  It's not a race, so it's up to you whether you do breaststroke while chatting to a friend, or front crawl your way to a fast time.  For further information go to

Don't be left on the water's edge!  If you would like to take part in 2015 email Andrew.
