A challenge for everyone. A swim for all. Swimathon 2020 will take place on Friday, March 27 – Sunday, March 29. We have challenges from 400m all the way up to the brand new Triple 5k challenge.

Individual Challenges


Distance Lengths (25m pool) Description
400m 16 Returning by popular demand for its second year is the 400m swim. If you haven't swum for a while, our 400m challenge is just the one for you. It’s the equivalent of 16 laps of a 25m pool and will remind you why you love swimming so much!
1.5k 60 A great challenge for novice swimmers or those who prefer to push their speed on shorter distances. If you fancy working your way up to 60 lengths of a 25m pool, whilst raising vital funds for our charities, then this is for you
2.5k 100 If you’re looking to go to great lengths to get sponsored, then 100 lengths of a 25m pool is for you. So jump in and make some proper fundraising waves. 
5k 200  This is the ultimate Swimathon challenge and by far the most popular Swimathon distance. It takes dedication, commitment and a good training programme to complete 5k. And, because 200 lengths of a 25m pool will leave everyone, including you, breathless, your efforts will be rewarded with lots of sponsorship and an awesome 5k medal at the end!
Triple 5k Challenge 600 Introducing the challenge of all challenges - new to 2019 – The Triple 5k, where you will swim 5k THREE times, each at different Swimathon sessions. Definitely not for the faint hearted! Distance is suitable for regular swimmers who are capable and confident of taking on longer distances. Putting in the hours of training for this distance is highly recommended.
