The Great Scottish Swim is an exciting one mile mass participation swim coming to Strathclyde County Park, North Lanarkshire. This event is open to those of all abilities, from world champions to club swimmers, fun swimmers who want a new challenge to those who want to get fit whilst raising money for charity.

Open water swimming was introduced to the Olympics in 2008 and has enjoyed growing interest since
