The Pier swim happened some years ago and was then stopped. Get Set 4 Success Ltd are excited to announce that this fabulous swim will take place again on 21st July, 2018. Julie Bradshaw who was borne and bred in Blackpool has worked with Bob Hudson to bring back this very popular open water swim. This is a superb stretch of water as you will see in the video above.

You will start at North Pier and finish at South Pier and all gather together at our beautiful venue, The Sand Castle Water Park to celebrate your achievement. The total distance is approximately 1.6 miles. To get you safely to the start you will travel from South Pier to North Pier in one of Blackpool's beautiful trams and pass by all the wonderful sights on your way such as the Tower and along the Golden Mile. What more could you want in a Swim Event?
