Lowestoft Christmas Day Swim 2022

The organising committee are pleased to announce that the Everyone Active 2022 Lowestoft Christmas Day Swim, sponsored by JME, will be going ahead.

The swim will be spearheaded by Everyone Active and supported by HM Coastguard, Lowestoft Volunteer Lifeguard Corps, Lowestoft Lions, St John Ambulance, RNLI and new for this year, East Point Pavilion.

Last year’s swim was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, making the 2022 swim the 43rd edition of the event.


  • Registration & Changing will be in the East Point Pavilion from 8:30am (time TBC)
  • Location: The 2022 swim will take place between East Point Pavilion and Claremont Pier. Further details will be released by Everyone Active (Waterlane Leisure Centre) in due course.
  • Time: 10am sharp! A quick warm up on the beach followed by a jog into the sea for your dip.

Swimmers’ applications will be available online (below) and in person from Waterlane Leisure Centre in early November. On registration, swimmers are required to make a minimum £5 donation to ensure their registration is complete. All monies will go to the charities listed above.

Monies can still be handed in on the day and in buckets. We will also be operating a band system so please make sure you register as no registration, no swim.
