The Swimathon is the UK’s biggest fundraising swimming event with thousands of people jumping into pools around the country. You can choose from 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k individual distances. For those who prefer a team challenge, you could also form a relay squad to tackle the 1.5k and 5k distances with your water-loving friends and lap up the glory. Alternatively, if you are unable to take part in one of the 600 Swimathon pools, try SimplySwim, which lets you choose your distance and complete your challenge at any pool.
