A pool full of swimmers in the sunshine for our first Sports Relief Swimathon event made all the work to get the pool open a week early more the worthwhile.
On Friday 21st, 38 swimmers swam over 90 kilometres, personal bests for distance and time were set. A few swimmers got carried away, having started out to do 1.5k continued and did 2.5k instead !
They were accompanied by music played through underwater speakers, leading to the comment – “ an awesome experience”.
It was so enjoyable, 3 swimmers are returning Sunday to do it all again !
