Epic Swim Wigan takes place at 3 Sisters Waterski Club in Wigan. There are 3 distances to choose from 750m, 1500m or 3.8km distances, depending upon your age and ability. The format for the swims will be different to our previous events and will be based on a ‘time trial’ format which will follow the latest Swim England and Government guidelines. To ensure safety and social distancing there will be no mass start for any events. Swimmers will be allocated a specific start time and will start in the water at pre-determined intervals. We’ve worked closely with the local council to make this swim series possible and we can guarantee both a safe and enjoyable event for everyone. 

We will have a live leaderboard throughout the day, both onsite and online, to keep you and your followers updated with swim times during the event. We can still guarantee a great atmosphere with our MC on the mic, music and a great finish line team. Presentations will be live on Facebook, with prizes for various categories.
