Aqua Vale in Aylesbury is giving people the chance to join in with the World’s Biggest Swim.

This year’s Swimathon will take place on Saturday March 22 so there is plenty of time to set up a team or train for a personal challenge.

The event, which is supported by legendary Olympic swimmer Duncan Goodhew, will raise vital funds for Sport Relief.

Aqua Vale is offering a range of distances and challenges to suit swimmers of all fitness levels. Individuals can choose from 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k distances, and there are also team challenge distances of 1.5k and 5k.

Teams can split the distance however they choose, to cater for the strongest and weakest swimmers in the squad.

“We are thrilled to be supporting the Swimathon again this year,” said Duncan Jefford, regional director for Everyone Active.

“People of all ages and abilities can take part and it’s a great opportunity to raise money for charity while enjoying a fantastic workout.
