SWIMTAG have partnered with The Swimathon Foundation to support this years swim events across the UK
Swimathon are returning to over 450 pools across the country on the weekend of May 6-8 2022 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 in February and get an exclusive 35% discount using the code SWIMTAG22.
For those who wish to get a taste of the main Swimathon events, we have created the Swimathon Distance Series by adding 4 new 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 in February only, with the results being frozen until the following year. The first 10 swimmers who join all 4 competitions, log a time for each & sign up to a Swimathon 2022 challenge using the discount code provided, will qualify to receive a Swimathon t-shirt. We are also giving away a £25 Zoggs voucher to one randomly selected swimmer who joins at least one Swimathon Distance Series competition.
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. We have designed a PDF poster that can be downloaded and printed or shared on social media by yourselves, just click the download link below.
