About the Big Swim

Do something epic.

The BIG SWIM – Sunday August 6th 2017

Have you ever considered swimming across the Northumberland Strait?  Most haven’t.  But for those who have there is the BIG SWIM, your chance to do something truly epic.  The BIG SWIM is a supported event held in August each year that combines an epic feat of endurance with the opportunity to raise funds for an awesome charity. 

The BIG SWIM is not a race and supports swimmers of all abilities to get out into the Northumberland Strait and achieve the unimaginable.  We welcome new and experienced swimmers alongside both the old and the young.  If you dare to dream we will help you make it happen.

Whether you want to add some ‘extra’ training to your Ironman calendar or need a reason to get off the couch, the Northumberland Strait is out there waiting for you.  Combine it with raising funds for one of Nova Scotia’s worthiest charities and you might just have the best thing you will do this summer.  Let’s do it!
