The Great Grimsby Dock Challenge Only 100 days to go!

Online entries have now closed. We are either full or the closing date has been reached

Join the Water Rats in their forth revival of this classic British swim challenge with a delectable smorgasbord of distances to suit all swimmers.

New to open water swimming?  Try a lap of Grimsby’s historic Alexandra Dock (first used in 1880) and [possibly] swim alongside some of the largest car cargo transporter ships in Europe.  Or go for a PB with our 2 or 4 mile swims – if you are wanting more of an end of season challenge go the whole hog and enter the 10Km marathon swim.

A perfect family outing or future club calendar regular to get together, have fun and challenge yourself to swim in a unique environment betwixt lake, river and sea.

Come join the Grimsby Water Rats in a celebration of swimming and a day to remember.

Changing facilities / wetsuit rinse / parking (included in entry) / refreshments / new friends / funky PA / prizes and a very loud starting canon to boot.
