96 places available on acclaimed Great East Swim training programme

People aged 35 – 49, and over the age of 50, who aren't involved in regular physical activity are being encouraged to register for the Great East Swim 2017.

The training programme is taking place at Crown Pools in Ipswich and Mildenhall Swimming Pool between March and June. It’s the first year that the programme has been opened up to the 35 – 49 age group, which is expected to generate lots of interest and will see places snapped up quickly.    

This will be the sixth year that the programme has been run, during which time over 250 individuals looking to make a positive change to their health and fitness have completed the challenge of swimming either ½ or 1 mile in open water at the Great East Swim, which takes place on 17 June 2017, at Alton Water reservoir near Ipswich.

The programme is delivered in partnership with Suffolk Sport, Suffolk County Council, Ipswich Borough Council and Abbeycroft Leisure. Other partners include Allied Health professionals, The Blossom Charity and One Life Suffolk.
