Event description

Description

Come and join us for a fun 1 mile swim in the heart of Salford Quays! With the clean waters of Salford Quays and support all around the basin, the Salford SMile is an event not to be missed!

Your swim will start in the Mariners Canal and then onto Ontario Basin to complete three 500m laps and your 'Salford SMile'. If you are lucky enough to be under 14 you can enter our 50m Kids Dash!

SMile Swimmers will be set off in waves dependent on estimated swim times. All SMilers will receive a unique swimcap, an RNLI medal and a few extra goodies.

Junior Dashers must be competent at swimming 50 metres (usually 2 lengths of an average pool) unaided. Dashers will receive a finishers certificate.

Swim sessions split into various waves, see ticket details for times available.

  • Adult Salford SMile (3 x 500m swim) - £25 per person
  • Junior Dash - £3 per person

Set yourself a challenge and complete the 1 mile swim within a certain time. Pick the ticket you think best suits you!

They will also be food and drink, a bouncy castle for the little ones and much more!


This year, Helly Hansen Watersports Centre is proud to be supporting the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI) through this event.

The RNLI's volunteer lifeboat crews couldn't save lives without people like you running marathons, baking cakes, holding events and coming up with ingenious ways to raise funds.

Your entry fee goes towards the running costs of the event, so it would be fantastic if you are able to raise sponsorship by taking on the Salford SMile - every little bit raised can help.

How your support helps:

  • £17 will buy two red and yellow flags to keep people safe on the beach.
  • £45 will buy a pair of yellow wellies to keep our lifeboat crew safe and steady.
  • £198 will buy a helmet to protect our crew from the worst conditions the sea can throw at them.

The simplest way is to set up a Just Giving page so the funds raised go directly to the RNLI titling your page 'Salford SMile' so it's easy for RNLI to track income. There's lots of information here to help you in your fundraising.

If you would like further information please visit the RNLI website and a member of the fundraising team will contact you.
