Swimathon, the world’s biggest fundraising swim, returns once again in 2018. Over the years, Swimathon’s mission of uniting swimmers around challenges and fundraising has prompted more than 700,000 swimmers to take part at their local pool and raised more than £48 million for charitable causes.
Swimathon 2018 will be returning for 2018 and will take place from Friday, April 27 – Sunday, April 29. This year, we are providing the opportunity for your Swim Club to showcase your training and compete together or against each other. On top of building team cohesion, you will be raising money for the joint charity partners of Swimathon 2018, Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie.
If your swim club enters over 30 swimmers and raises over £1,000 for our two charity partners, you will be entered into a prize draw and stand the chance for Duncan Goodhew to come and run a training session with your club! By hosting a Swimathon challenge club session you will also have the opportunity to apply for a Swimathon Grants Scheme.
Ranging from 400m – 5k, there is a challenge for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re a water polo, diving or synchro club everyone can join in. Why not try 400m sculling or whilst practicing your ball control? Click here to see all the Swimathon challenges your club can take on!
