Roe Valley Leisure Centre is participating in the Swimathon challenge and is encouraging swimmers in the North West to take on a Swimathon challenge as a team, or as an individualm to raise funds for Sport Relief.
From 18th March–20th March, Swimathon will take place in over 600 pools across the UK.
Swimathon returns in 2016 with official charity partner Sport Relief as part of the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games with registration opening on Tuesday 24th November 2015. After a year away, Sport Relief is returning as charity partner with the aim to reach even higher fundraising numbers than in the past. Swimathon 2014 raised over £2.6 million for Sport Relief.
Swimathon is the world’s biggest fundraising swimming event with thousands of people jumping
into pools around the UK. You can choose from 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k individual distances. For those who prefer a team challenge, you could also form a relay squad to tackle the 1.5k and 5k distances with your water-loving friends and lap up the glory.
Registration is now open, and for a limited time only, participants will benefit from 50% off their entry fee. Be quick, and you’ll be able to snap one of the half price entries on offer until 21 December only*.
Stephen Graham added: “The Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Swimathon is a fantastic way to bring our community together, while providing ample opportunity to get fit and healthy in the pool.
Limavady residents can take the plunge themselves, along with family and friends to complete a swimming challenge of their choice, be it 1.5k or 5k, all while raising funds for those in need.”
Swimathon President and Olympic gold-medallist Duncan Goodhew said, “I love Swimathon because it gives people a goal to train for, an extra reason to get in the pool and above all else it helps to raise money for a truly fantastic cause.”
