Swimathon, the world’s biggest fundraising swim, has been encouraging swimmers the length and breadth of the UK to swim a distance challenge since the very first event 30 years ago. Since then, Swimathon's mission of uniting swimmers around challenges and fundraising, has prompted more than half a million swimmers to take part at their local pool and raised more than £46 million for charitable causes.
All levels of fitness, all abilities and all ages are accounted for with our range of Swimathon challenges.
You can choose to take on one of our Individual 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k challenges or you can join forces with colleagues, friends or family members for our Team 1.5k and 5k.
Times and date at Rainbow Leisure Centre:
Saturday, 8th April - 14.00 - 17.00
17.00 - 20.00

"Swimathon provides motivation and a personal challenge to all levels of swimmers. It also offers a goal to train for, a target to achieve and a great cause to support.” Duncan Goodhew MBE, Olympic gold medallist, London 2012 Ambassador and Swimathon President
