Join thousands of other supporters on the Bournemouth Pier to Pier Swim as you brave the English channel in this incredible 1.4 mile open water challenge.
Starting from Bournemouth Pier, put your front stroke to the test in this challenging sea swim along the coastline to Boscombe Pier.
Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, but it’s the money you raise that powers our life saving research, so we ask our heart swimmer to set themselves a target of at least £150. As a special incentive, for those of you who raise at least £150 (excluding gift aid) in sponsorship by 8 July 2019, you’ll be classed as a star swimmer and will be rewarded with a brand new star swimmer swim hat that you can wear with pride during the event.
Your Bournemouth Pier to Pier entry includes:
Full water safety cover
Branded swim hat
Timing chip and wristband to wear during the swim
Luggage transport from start to finish location
A training guide from Outdoor Swimmer
Full lifeguard and medical support
A medal and recorded swim time for all finishers
A complimentary hot drink and bottle of water at the finish
You must be 14 years old to take part in the swim and under-18’s must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the event.
