About This Event
The John West Great East Swim will return to Alton Water on Saturday 19th June 2021.
The event will follow strict COVID-19-secure procedures, ensuring the safety of participants, spectators, and Great Swim crew. As such we will be operating to a reduced capacity and a slightly different timetable to previous years. It will be a fantastic day out in a truly stunning setting. With distances to suit all levels and abilities, a farmers' market, and musical entertainment, there really is something for everyone!
Suffolk Mind are delighted to announce that we are the local charity partner for this fantastic local event, the John West Great East Swim 2021.
Whether it is your first time, or you are looking for your next adventure, you can guarantee that it will be a fantastic experience in a stunning setting. With distances to suit all levels and abilities, from the newest and youngest participants up to seasoned marathon swimmers, and all those in-between, there really is something for everyone.
As the local charity partner, we have been given a limited number of places for both the half mile and 1-mile swims, which means that if you can commit to raising a minimum of £200 in sponsorship for your swim to support Suffolk Mind, you can take part, with no registration charge, through us!
Entries for the event are open now so why not dig out your goggles and take up the challenge to raise funds for Suffolk Mind. Lets make waves for Suffolk Mind at the 2021 John West Great East Swim!
