Swimarathon 2013


Our 3rd annual event went with a big splash !

From 8.30 in the morning the music was loud, the pool was ready and the helpers were in place.  The atmosphere grew, paticularly when the school children were swimming with Mums & Dads, Grandmas & Grandads cheering on their youngsters.

The entries were up 17% on last year, which we are delighted with, and already some teams have said they intend to have more swimmers next year.  The total lengths swum was 6145 and the team completing the most lengths was UL Manatees who achieved 250 lengths which is roughly one every 14 seconds.  Every team completed over 100 lengths with no less than 7 teams swimming over 200 lengths.  Westgate Junior school A almost made the 200 club !  Well done to everyone.

Once again a big thank you to our sponsors, without their support it would not be possible to stage the event.  Also a big thank you to everyone at the Yarborough Leisure Centre for their help and support in staging the event.

We will be presenting a cheque to the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance in June when we hope to have all our sponsorship money in.

Finally, to all those who took part, thank you, we hope you had a fun day and look forward to seeing you next year.
