Make a splash in the 2009 Swimathon

Join Swimathon 2009 at leisure@Cheltenham, and be part of the world's biggest swim to raise money for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Swimathon 2009 is set to make a splash as it launches at Leisure@Cheltenham. As the world's largest fundraising swim, thousands of swimmers will take part in over 500 pools nationwide between 16 -19 April 2009.

Swimathon entrants will be able to make a difference by taking part at Leisure@ and helping the lives of thousands of terminally ill patients through the donations to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Swimathon 2009 is open to everyone, encouraging people to set their own personal challenge by accomplishing a distance of their choice. Swimmers can challenge themselves to the ultimate 5K challenge, 2.5K for the intermediate swimmer or 1.5K for those who swim occasionally. For those interested in joining forces with friends, colleagues or family, the 5K challenge can also be completed as part of a team of up to five people.
