The Rotary Swimarathon
The Rotary Swimarathon is a non-competitive swim organised by the four Rotary Clubs in Northampton. Before the Covid pandemic, the event took place on a yearly basis, but due to the pandemic and the loss of the original venue, there has been a break.
The Event is Back
This year the event is back and running in a modern and exciting new venue. Now based at the Northampton School for Boys in the excellent swimming pool with ample parking and good changing facilities. The event is essentially a charity event open to teams of 4 to 6 swimmers of any age group or gender. Teams from schools, clubs, families, business organisations are all welcome. The only criteria are that every member of the swimming team must be able to swim a minimum of one length of the pool. Each team entered will be given a time and on arrival a lane. It is then up to the team to organise the way it swims for an hour in relay style
How far can Your Team Go?
It is an opportunity to see just how far your team can swim in the time available, (1 hour) whilst at the same time raising money through sponsorship for your efforts. Normally the income from sponsorship would have been divided between the teams named cause and Rotary Charities. This year all the teams are encouraged to pass the sponsorship money to the Rotary organisers for the benefit of just one group of individuals. The Children of the Ukraine.
The forms that can be downloaded from this web site give you all that you need to take part in this informal and very worthwhile event. Where else can you enjoy swimming with your fellow friends or colleagues, raise some money for the Children of the Ukraine and at the same time contribute to your own fitness.
Not a Swimmer?
If you are not a swimmer but would like to support this event, then why not be a sponsor? There is no minimum amount and sponsorship from organisations and individuals is welcome and will receive recognition in the future materials we publish.
Download a form, set up a team and apply. Yes, it is that easy. Enjoy the swim and thank you for taking part.
