Swimathon, the world’s biggest fundraising swim, returns once again in 2019. Over the years, Swimathon’s mission of uniting swimmers around challenges and fundraising has prompted more then 700,000 swimmers to take part at their local pool and has raised more than £50 million for charitable causes.
Swimathon 2019 will take place from Friday 29th March – Sunday 31st March. This is a opportunity for Swimming Clubs to showcase training and compete together or against each other.
If your swimming club enters over 30 swimmers and raises over £1,000 for the Swimathon two charity partners; Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie., then you will be entered into a prize draw and stand the chance to for Duncan Goodhew to run a training session with your club!
Ranging from 400m – 5k individual distances, and 1.5k or 5k team distances, there is a challenge for everyone.
How to set up a Swimathon Club Session
This year, your swim club can set up your own Swimathon session by contacting a member of the Swimathon team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 0845 3670036. A member of the team will set up your club’s Swimathon session as a private venue. You will then be provided with a private link to the session’s registration page, which can be shared with your club members.
