Get Set 4 Success Ltd Proudly Present the Blackpool Pier to Pier Open Water Swim
This iconic Blackpool Pier to Pier swim will be open to swimmers again in July, 2018. This popular Open Water Swim is back again to please the crowds. Once a regular swim, it has not taken place now for some years. Thanks to the Julie Bradshaw and fellow Coach, Bob Hudson and the Team at Get Set 4 Success Ltd, the Pier Swim is BACK!
The swim which costs only £45 (**) (refund protection payment optional) will take place on Saturday 21st July, 2018 and will be limited to 100 participants. Should the weather be inclement then the alternative date will be Sunday 22nd July.
This fun and safe swim (thanks to Blackpool Council and their Coastguards for the safety cover) will begin at North Pier and finish at South Pier, the 'home' of the Sandcastle Water Park.
You will be transported safely to the start in one of Blackpool's lovely trams and pass along the Golden Mile with all its attractions including the famous Blackpool Tower. On completion of the swim, you will receive a bespoke medal to commemorate this special event along with a tee shirt. Just take a look at the medal we are giving out:
Swimmers will be able to enjoy the comradeship of such an event by joining in celebrations afterwards and it is an opportunity to make more friends.
