About the event

Organised by the  Outdoor Swimming Society, the Dart 10k was the first, and is arguably the finest, 10k swim on the open water calendar and 2018 is its ninth year. It has grown from 200 swimmers to 1600.

The course of the Dart 10K is a unique journey punctuated by landmarks such as the Cormorant Tree, the white rock, Sharpham boat house and Bow Creek. It’s supported by volunteers from the local and swimming community who make it special. 

It’s not a race – they have some fantastic and some very fast swimmers, they have skin swimmers, disabled swimmers, newbies, butterfly swimmers – but whatever the level, the language of the day is different. It’s a journey, not a race, and there’s room for everyone in the river.

The day ends with good times! The swim finishes on the village green in Dittisham where there’s a mini-festival feel, with local food suppliers and a bar, a children’s playground, all the fun of the fair as swimmers celebrate. With deck chairs and a great view, supporters can wile away as many hours as it takes you to get there. Entertainment on the Ham starts from 12.30pm on Sunday.
