How does a Swimathon Work?
We are looking for teams of up to 6 swimmers. Each team is given a lane of the pool and will swim for 55 minutes. BUT ONLY ONE TEAM MEMBER SWIMS AT A TIME.
On average this means that each swimmer does about 10-20 lengths during the 55 minutes, but there is no need for each team member to swim the same number of lengths.
Every team member gets sponsorship for the TEAM
