Swimathon 2020 launched

Sat, Mar 28th 2020 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Our Annual Charity Swimming Event


Club members please log in for more information.

The event has raised over £222,000 in the last 23 years for numerous charities, schools and groups in the Gordano Valley and beyond and we invite you to take part by forming a team or teams to join in the fun and laughter of the day.   

Teams from Primary and Secondary Schools, Guides, Brownies, Scouts, Cubs, Football, Youth and other groups, organisations, families etc. from Portishead, Clevedon, Nailsea, Backwell,  Avonmouth and surrounding areas take part each year. 

Teams of 6 swim in a relay at their own pace (it is not a race) for 35 minutes. Age is no barrier but all entrants must be able to complete a length of the 25 m. pool competently. They should also be aware that during their session they will be starting some of their lengths in the water at the deep end of the pool. We have special arrangements in place for weaker or non-swimmers but need advance notice of anyone in this category.

THE PURPOSE OF THE EVENT IS THAT THROUGH SPONSORSHIP ALL SWIMMERS RAISE AS MUCH MONEY AS POSSIBLE FOR CHARITY

Swimathon continues to support local charities and this year our main charities are:-  

MARIE CURIE  |  THE JESSIE MAY TRUST  |  THE SALVATION ARMY 

SCHOOLS PROJECTS  |  OTHER GROUPS  |  LOCAL ROTARY CHARITIES

To take part please  download & complete the Entry Form and return it to me as soon as possible.

Come and have fun while raising money for our charities and your schools and groups 

Yours sincerely
