It is with great disappointment that we have had to postpone Swimathon 2020, originally due to take place on 27-29 March. However, we are thrilled to announce that Swimathon 2020 has been moved to 16-18 October 2020. All of our Swimathon pools and participants have been so understanding of the current situation and we want to say a massive thank you to you all for your support. All participants will be automatically transferred to the new date in due course but please note that we will not be able to confirm session times for a number of months. For now, please stay safe, support those around you and stay at home.
