Great North Swim

Join Team Garden House and take on the Great North Swim between Friday 7th and Sunday 9th June 2024.

We have limited spaces available in the one mile distance slots at this year's Arla Great North Swim. This is equivalent to 64 lengths of a 25m pool, so is suitable for swimmers of all abilities.

Whether you're looking to get fit, improve your personal best or take your time and soak up some nature, you can feel good knowing you've done it while raising vital funds for Garden House Hospice Care. So dive in and join us at the UK's biggest open water swimming event!

Age restrictions

You must be 16 or older on event day to take part in the Great North Swim.

Please note: Adults must book for anyone under 18 at the time of booking. Please choose the relevant ticket when registering and include your details first, then fill in the attendee details on the second screen.


The registration fee for this event is £23 per person. This includes a free 'Team Garden House' running vest or technical t-shirt - you can confirm your preference and size upon sign-up.

After booking via our website, look out for an email from Run for Charity which details the final steps in finalising your registration.


We ask each swimmer to pledge to raise a minimum of £404 for Garden House Hospice Care. Why? Because this will fund our entire services for one hour - which we hope you'll agree would be a pretty amazing thing to do!

We need you, your friends, families and colleagues to help assemble a team of amazing swimmers for the Great North Swim, helping Garden House Hospice Care continue to provide free palliative care in and around North Hertfordshire.
