Swim Challenge 2020

2nd January 2020, 11:55am | By David |

Swim Challenge 2020 has now started at all Wiltshire Council swimming pools but it’s definitely not too late to get involved!  

This year’s challenge is a team event with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 10 people allowed in any one team, and the target is to swim the length of the South West Coast Path! One of the UK’s most iconic stretches of coastline, and the longest national trail, is walked by thousands of people every year but we’re going one step, or stroke, further by trying to swim the length of it.  

That’s 630 miles or 40,320 lengths of our swimming pools.  

Simply get your team together – a group of friends, a family, maybe a team of you from work and swim together to reach your target. You can log your distances in the Swim Challenge folder at each centre and keep a track of how far your team has gone through the year.  

Alternatively you can attempt the whole challenge on your own, or try the Minehead to Poole direct route – which is 73 miles or 4,672 lengths.  

Swimming is a fantastic form of regular exercise and the challenge a great way to get motivated, stay on track and achieve something. You can raise money for your chosen charity or just swim for the enjoyment of it – it’s entirely up to you!
