RJAH Swimathon 2018

Welcome to RJAH Swimathon 2018

Our Swimathon for 2018 runs from April to October.

We are delighted you are considering swimming for us to fundraise for The League of Friends to RJAH. If you have not taken part in our swimathon before you can find out more information here.


How much to enter and where can I swim?

It is free to enter and you can complete your goal at any swimming pool as long as you let us know – contact details below.

Set your swimming target

Whether you are working in a team relay or as an individual, The League of Friends to RJAH encourages you to set yourself realistic targets to your ability. If appropriate, ensure you have been given full medical clearance from your GP to take part in the challenge. Beginners may wish to agree their target with a family member or swimming instructor. If one length is a suitable goal – please give it a splash!

The table below is based on a 25 metre pool and may help teams or more adventurous individuals decide on a distance plan:

Kilometres                             miles                       lengths

5                                              3.1                          200

2.5                                          1.6                          100

1.5                                          0.9                          60
