Take part in World’s Biggest Swim

A LEISURE centre in Hastings is urging people to sign up and join in with the World’s Biggest Swim.

This year’s Swimathon will take place on Sunday, April 28 so there is plenty of time to set up a team or train for a personal challenge. The event, which is supported by legendary swimmer Olympian Duncan Goodhew, is to raise funds for Marie Curie Cancer Care.

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

Jeff Hart, managing director of Freedom Leisure, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the Swimathon again this year. Marie Curie Cancer Care is such a worthwhile cause and this event provides a great opportunity for people to come together and raise much-needed funds for the charity. It’s a lot of fun, there’s a fantastic atmosphere and those taking part get important exercise benefits too.”
