On Sunday, 9 April, the Centre will welcome swimmers to take part in the Swimathon from 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm.
Swimathon challenges people to swim 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k solo, or 1.5k and 5k with friends. But don’t worry – if you decide to swim solo, you won’t be going it alone as a range of training plans are available on the Swimathon website, complete with tips from water wizard Duncan Goodhew MBE.
The entry fee for the Swimathon is £13 for individuals (any distance) and £26 for the team swims. Concessions are priced £9.75 and £19.50 accordingly.
Over £46million has been raised by Swimathon over the past 30 years, and this year the chosen charity is Marie Curie.
For more information, including registration, tips and a full list of the swimming pools taking part nationwide do visit the Swimathon website.
Registration closes at 11pm, Wednesday 5 April.
