HUNDREDS of swimmers will compete in a one-mile open water swim in Morecambe Bay.
The Morecambe Bay Swim will start at Morecambe Yacht Club at 11am on Sunday, August 28.
It will be the first time since the 1950s that competitive open water swimming has taken place in Morecambe.
Whilst being an amazing outdoor challenge for the swimmers, spectators and supporters will also be invited to enjoy a festival atmosphere on the promenade and follow the race as it runs in a southerly direction before looping back towards the finish line.
