The swim of your life
Swimathon Distance Challenges are designed to suit all levels of fitness, ability and age. In 2013, Swimathon hopes to encourage thousands more swimmers to get involved!
Don’t worry if your local pool isn’t taking part or if there are no sessions suitable for you – you can still take part at any pool of your choice and in your own time over the event weekend with SimplySwim. Just click on ‘enter now’ below, select the SimplySwim option, and choose one of the specified distances to swim (also available as a team).
Swim further, faster, or for longer than ever before
You may be trying to beat last year’s time on the Individual 5k, swim the Individual 1.5k for the first time, or complete a few laps as part of your contribution to your team’s total. Whatever your choice, we hope our Swimathon Distance Challenges will allow you to achieve your goal.

645 pools across the UK hosted Swimathon 2012. Swimathon 2013 promises to have hundreds of pools up and down the country taking part. Wherever you live, we have a pool near you
A legacy of London 2012, increased participation in sport, is a focus point for Swimathon 2013. Swimathon is encouraging greater participation in the sport of swimming, providing a great way to introduce swimmers to their local pools and encourage them to keep using facilities after the event.
