Swimathon is the world’s biggest fundraising swim!

The 2024 event will be taking place at Hathersage Pool on 27th and 28th April

Swimathon began in 1986, the 1986 pilot was a London only initiative, organised by the Guild of London Bath Managers to encourage pools to get more people swimming. The launch of the annual event was in 1988, Swimathon has since seen over 700,000 participants at over 1000 different pools across the UK, getting involved, swimming for the challenge and raising money for charity.

Swimathon looks to attract swimmers of all levels from experienced Swimathon participants to complete novices in the pools, and this is reflected in the different challenges available to those taking part.

The official charity of Swimathon 2024 is Cancer Research & Marie Curie. The charity provides care and support for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. It has been doing this work for over 65 years and last year alone cared for over 40,000 people across the UK.
