New year, same mission for School Swimathon: inspire 16,000 pupils to ‘Swim their Best’! Created by The Swimathon Foundation, the charity behind Swimathon, the world’s largest annual fundraising swim, and Swim England, the national governing body for swimming in England, School Swimathon is setting the challenge to pupils all across the country to get the most from their school swimming lessons and swim further than they ever have before in 2018.
Open Water Swimathon
Start your open water journey with Open Water Swimathon 2019 and join Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie to raise as much money as possible for two causes close to the nation’s hearts.
Open Water Swimathon will take place from Saturday 7th - Sunday 8th September. We have a range of distances available (from 500m up to 5k), which makes it the perfect challenge for both experienced open water swimmers, and those transferring from the pool to the open water for the first time!
Choose to take part in an organised session at one of our registered venues or take part at a time and place which works for you with MySwimathon.
FUNDRAISE FOR CANCER RESEARCH UK AND MARIE CURIE
The Swimathon Foundation, the charity behind the hugely successful Swimathon campaign, is delighted to announce the introduction of a new challenge as part of the Swimathon family - Open Water Swimathon.
Following Swimathon’s recent 30th anniversary which has so far raised over £1.5 million, The Swimathon Foundation, the charity behind both events, is delighted to announce that Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie will be the official charity partners of Swimathon for the next four years.
A new strategy aimed at helping the country become healthy and active through swimming has been launched today by Swim England. Formally known as the Amateur Swimming Association, Swim England is the national governing body for swimming.
