Bournemouth Pier to Pier Swim 2017

 The biggest charity swim is back for 2017.


Join thousands of other supporters on the Bournemouth Pier to Boscombe Pier Swim as you brave the English channel in this incredible 1.4 mile open water challenge. 

Entry registration for Under 16’s can be done by downloading an entry form via the website.

Your entry fee covers the cost of organising the event, but it’s the money you raise that funds our life saving research so we ask our swimmers to set themselves a target of at least £150.

As a special incentive, for those of you who send in at least £150 in sponsorship money by 1st June 2017, you’ll be classed as a star swimmer and will be rewarded with a special swim hat that you can wear with pride during the event.

Please be aware that your swim packs will be sent out no sooner than four weeks prior to the event.

Your Bournemouth Pier to Pier entry includes

  • Full water safety cover
  • Swim hat, chip and wristband to wear during the swim
  • Luggage transport from start to finish location
  • Training guidance
  • Fundraising support
  • Medical support
  • A medal and recorded swim time for all finishers
  • A complimentary hot drink and bottle of water at the finish
