Story

Why we swim....
On 20th December 2015, a group of 6 keen swimmers assembled at Charlton Lido's 50m outdoor pool to swim a classic set of 100 x 100m (10km) off 2 minutes to get ourselves fitter and front-run the turkey over the festive period.
Sadly one of our group is no longer with us. During the Easter weekend in 2016, Steve Wand was fatally injured while out training on his bike and the world lost one of the fittest athletes of his age group. He is
survived by his wife Janice and 2 children.
On the 7th December 2019, a group of ca. 40 passionate open water and swim enthusiasts from all over the UK will join forces to replicate the 100 x 100m (10km) swim in Steve's memory raising money for Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust. We swim for ourselves, for charity and, most importantly, for Steve's memory.
This is the 4th year we have run the event (having raised ca. £6000 so far over the last 3 events). Please give generously and note that this event is NO swimathon....it is brutally tough and will last over 3 hours - so very similar to a marathon with many swimmers achieving many PBs in the process! Many thanks, Mark
