Our racing ethos


Charity Support

We believe in raising funds for organisations that address important issues. 100% of the event profits and money raised by swimmers goes directly towards supporting these charities, enabling us to make a positive impact and contribute to meaningful change. Together, we can swim with purpose and create a better future for all.

By supporting local businesses we aim to create a positive impact by giving back to the community and building long-lasting relationships that contribute to the  well-being of the area surrounding Burgh Island.

We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment. We strive to organise the event with eco-friendly practices, such as waste reduction, recycling, and promoting sustainable practices. We actively encourage participants and spectators to adopt a "leave no trace" mentality.
