Swim Club Challenge

Swimathon will be returning for 2018 and will take place from Friday, April 27 – Sunday, April 29. This year, we are providing the opportunity for Swim Clubs 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.    

How to set up a Swimathon club session

This year, your swim club can set up your own Swimathon session. If you would like to do so, contact a member of the Swimathon team by emailing info@swimathon.org or calling 0845 36 700 36. 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 you can share with your fellow club members! Your club’s on-the-day materials including lap counting cards, swim caps and medals will be posted to your organiser.

Swimmers tagging themselves to a club

Club swimmers can simply register as individual swimmers and tag themselves into their club during registration. Club swimmers can compete at the same venue or different venues across the UK, with all times and fundraising going towards their clubs overall efforts.
