Held at our iconic MediaCityUK venue it’s one of the only venues in the UK where spectators are able to walk directly around the swim course and closely follow their swimmers to cheer them around. The friendly atmosphere and keen competition is guaranteed to provide a great experience. Make a family day of it too and enjoy all the facilities that the booming MediaCityUK area has to offer!
