A sponsored swim open to all club members and parents, with the goal of our total distance swum equalling or exceeding the length of the River Thames (346 km). This will take place in London Fields Lido in the afternoon of Saturday 30th June, with participants having one hour slots with which to achieve their distance. Stronger swimmers will be challenged to swim 3.5km or 70 lengths of the stunning, outdoor facility. Swimmers from outside the performance squads and parents may choose their own distances to add to the total. Please visit the Gofundme page for details.
The Community Day will begin at 3pm with the following activities taking place throughout the duration:
