Marathon Swims Virtual Challenge is your chance to take on an iconic marathon swimming distance in your own time. And it's FREE!

Marathon Swims 2021:

The Marathon Swims 2020 event will not be taking place as planned in 2020.  We'll be back next year for Marathon Swims 2021.

 

This decision about this year's event has been made after very careful consideration of the options available to us and our ability to stage Marathon Swims 2020 as we would like, in as safe and secure an environment as possible, and we have sadly reached the conclusion that this will not be possible this November. Participants have been emailed to outline the options available. Register your interest in Marathon Swims 2021 today.
