The SWIMATHON is not a marathon, but a FUN event. No team or individual is being asked to swim an unduly long distance. The event involves a team swimming continuously for 55 minutes with one member of the team being in the water at a time (relay style). Swimmers aged 5 to 83 and of differing abilities have taken part since the first Swimathon was organised in 1988. Since then over £500,000 has been raised for charities and organisations. You can be part of this history making by helping this very popular charity continue to the next target 0f £600,000. The dates for 2018 are 24th February and the 1st March 2018 register your interest via an email to swimathon@purleyrotary.com
