Introducing the Swim Club challenge!


Dear Swim Club organiser,

Swimathon has returned 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 Swimathon 2018’s joint charity partners, Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie.


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! See all the Swimathon challenges your club can take on here!


Why enter?

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 a chance to have a training session run by Duncan Goodhew!


By hosting a Swimathon challenge club session, you will also have the opportunity to apply for a Swimathon Grant Scheme.


How to register

Your swim club can set up your own Swimathon session between the Friday, April 20 – Sunday, May 6 and it can take the place of your usual training session.


Your club’s session will be set up 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.


If you would like to get your club registered or just want more information, contact a member of the Swimathon team by emailing or calling 0845 36 700 36.

The Swimathon team
