Story

On your marks.... Swimathon is back in 2017 for the 30th year! 

This is your lane. Your challenge. Your chance to make lives better by raising money for Marie Curie this year, helping people living with any terminal illness, and their families

As the world’s biggest fundraising swimming event, you can jump in the pool and make a difference at over 600 pools! Swimathon's 30th anniversary will include many celebrations online and around the pool on event weekend.

You can choose to take on 1.5k, 2,5k or 5k or, with our SimplySwim challenge, do your own distance in your own time. 

You could even form a relay team to tackle the 1.5k and 5k distances with your water-loving friends. Whatever you do, the money you raise will help people living with any terminal illness, and their families.

About the charity

The Swimathon Foundation (TSF) owns the annual national Swimathon event. Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie are uniting as partners for Swimathon to raise as much money as possible for two causes close to the nation’s hearts. This is your chance to fundraise for both incredible causes.
