Great East Swim Outreach 2018

Welcome to the Great East Swim outreach programme which is in its seventh year. The programme is a partnership between Suffolk Sport, Suffolk County Council and Sport England which provides an opportunity for YOU and YOUR friends/relatives to take part in a progressive programme of training and support to help you get physically active, with the goal of taking part in the Great East Swim on Saturday 23rd June 2018.

The programme is open to individuals aged 18 plus who are currently inactive.

This challenge involves a half mile or 1 mile open water swim in the Alton Water Reservoir in Holbrook, Suffolk.

As well as understanding all the support you will be receiving, you will find the participant criteria, course locations and dates, be able to register your interest and see what happened to some of the previous participants:
