Canceled for 2022


Join us next year in 2023

After much consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2022 BIG SWIM. With low participation numbers this year it became too challenging to create a successful event. It was a tough decision and one we did not make lightly.

You’ve asked to head back to our roots of a Northumberland Strait crossing from NB to PEI in 2023 so that is what you’ll get and we hope to see you there! Watch here and our social channels for the 2023 BIG SWIM announcement this December.

To continue to support Brigadoon visit and stay tuned to our social media channels over the next while as we share their other funding initiatives.

About the BIG SWIM

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.
