Great East Swim Outreach Programme

The John West Great East Swim Outreach Programme

Welcome to the Great East Swim outreach programme which will be in its ninth year in 2020. The programme is a partnership between Suffolk County Council and Active Suffolk 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 active, with the goal of taking part in the Great East Swim on Saturday 20th June 2020.

The programme is open to individuals aged 18+ who are currently inactive: This means you must be doing less than 30 minutes physical activity per week.

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

On these pages you will find everything you need to know and do to be part of this amazing project. 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 read about what happened to some of the previous participants:
