SWIMTAG are once again partnering with The Swimathon Foundation to support this years swim events across the UK
The Swimathon event will be returning to more than 450 pools across the country on the weekend of May 12-14 2023 with their annual fundraising swim for Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie. We wanted to support all our swimmers taking part in the event and encourage as many as possible to signup this year, so SWIMTAG users can register for any Swimathon challenge and get an exclusive 35% discount using the code SWIMTAGR2T1.
For those who wish to get a taste of the main Swimathon events, we have re-opened the Swimathon Distance Series, 4 distance competitions of 400m, 1.5km, 2.5km and 5km. The Swimathon Distance Series allows you to pick a distance and see if you are able to complete it in one swim, you can start at 400m (16 lengths in a 25m pool) and see if you are able to continue to the next. For those already signed up, they can use the competitions to help train for the event and compare your progress with others.
The competition series will be active from 20 March - 14 May at which point the results are frozen until the following year. If you are running the Swimathon events at your pool we encourage you to promote the competition series as a great introduction to the events and a way for swimmers to track their training progress and socialise with other participants.
