Dive into the Arla Great North Swim for us
The Arla Great North Swim is not only the biggest open-water swimming event in the UK, but is also Europe’s largest mass participation swim with more than 10,000 swimmers taking part.
At this weekend-long celebration, you can expect stunning scenery, the best of local food and drink, outdoor activities, culture, art, history and thousands of like-minded people coming together. This is the perfect event for you if you are a nervous swimmer, want to involve the whole family, or really want to challenge yourself.
You can choose from six different lengths to suit your ability, age, and level of experience. So challenge yourself to make a splash for us.

Taking part in this challenge is not only an incredible personal achievement but you’ll also be helping us to give vulnerable children a safe and happy childhood.
We ask everyone taking part in this challenge to aim for a fundraising target of up to £350, depending on your chosen swim length. In return you’ll receive:
- A free Action for Children T-shirt to wear on the day of the challenge and warm you up post-swim.
- Access to our exclusive Sports Facebook Group to share tips and ask for advice from other participants.
- One to one support from your local fundraiser all the way up to event day and beyond.
