The Swimathon is back!
Saturday 30th October – 5.30pm
The Sports Centre, Festival Place, Basingstoke
Have fun, raise money for your chosen charity AND help others
For 38 years – apart from the hiatus of 2020! – the Basingstoke Lions Club has staged an annual Swimathon, raising thousands of pounds for those less fortunate in this town.
Open to swimmers of all ages and abilities who form teams of up to 6 people, each swimmer covers 2 lengths of the pool (50 metres) in relay style for half an hour. Completed laps count towards the cumulative team figure. Where a team comprises children, parents are welcome to support their team on the night.
Team start times will be allocated on a ‘first come first served’ basis on receipt of a completed entry form. So, teams who would prefer a particular start time, should submit their entry forms QUICKLY.
On receipt of a completed entry form the team will be sent an official sponsor-ship form so they can start to obtain sponsors. Completed forms must be presented to the organisers on arrival at the venue.
On completion of their swim, team members will be presented with individual Certificates of Achievement.
So, do YOU have a particular project or charity that you wish to support? Use this event to fundraise for it! All we ask is that half of the total raised be donated to our charity trust fund to support our project.
