Swimarathon 2020

Team pictures and results from our great 2nd Swimarathon. Huge thanks to all our sponsors, helpers and participants

Our second Swimarathon held on 8 February 2020 was  huge success.

Huge thanks to everyone who took part and raised money for local charities.  we will know the total raised shortly and will update this page then, but hope to exceed £15000.  

The event is not about competing but taking part and everyone is a winner.  we hope you all enjoyed the event and will come back next year and persuade friends to take part as well.
