1) The Rotary Club of Penrith invites you to enter a team in our Swimathon. This fun event is intended to provide you with an opportunity to raise funds for your own preferred charity, good cause, club or team – or if you prefer for this year’s Rotary supported charities.
2) Swimming information:
a) Teams can consist of up to 8 swimmers for children, but the optimum number for adults is 5.
b) Each team swims continuously, in relay, with only one team member swimming at a time for 50 minutes.
c) Sponsorship can be based on the number of lengths swum by the whole team, or more commonly, for a fixed sum of money. We encourage each team member to seek sponsorship, and we hope you will raise a substantial sum for your chosen charity.
d) This is a fun event: one has to break records, and we ask that inexperienced or out of condition swimmers do not over-exert themselves.
e) RECORD ATTEMPTS - If you really do want to try and set or break a record the following rules will apply:-
i) Maximum team size is 5.
ii) You should expect to share a lane like everyone else.
iii) No diving is allowed.
iv) There will be monitoring at both ends of the pool.
3) Administrative information:
a) We will provide sponsorship forms which if you want them certified need to be brought on the night of the swim.
b) We will record the lengths swum by each team and certify your sponsorship forms to enable you to collect money from your sponsors.
c) The main aim of the event is to provide you with a fundraising opportunity however, to cover pool costs for the event there will be an entry fee of £15. If you would like to you could also give us a small donation towards the good causes we support.
We look forward to seeing you at the event and thank you for your support.
