Well that was a bit more fun than I thought it would be!

Completed the Great North Swim 5km in sub 1h 30min, matching my pool time bang on.

Well done Clare and Richard for taking part in the 2023 Great North Swim, completing an amazing distance of 5km and raising £1,382 too. The sun shone and although the water was still a little fresh, the conditions were pretty perfect for tackling the challenge. 


Clare and Richard bought their own places in this challenge, then set up a fundraising page on the CLEFT website. If you are taking part in an event and would like to do it for CLEFT, please contact the CLEFT office and find out how we can support you and to request a running vest, swimming cap or t-shirt.
