Annual Swimathon -
Organiser Howard Peacock
This annual event is an important feature of the Royston Rotary Club’s year. It incorporates a great deal of fun
for the teams who participate as well as raising funds for both the participant’s and for Rotary charities.
You have an opportunity to donate 50% of the sponsorship money raised by your team to your own chosen
Charity or dedicate it towards your own in-house project. The other 50% will be distributed by the Rotary Club
of Royston Charity Fund helping alleviate suffering at home and overseas.
Our next Swimathon is booked for
18th October 2020 at Royston Leisure Centre
, Woodcock Road Royston, SG8 7XT
All ages welcome
Teams can have up to 6 members who swim in relay for 55 minutes The aim is for each team to swim as many
lengths as possible in the 55 minutes available. Each team member to have sought sponsors for the number of
lengths the team (not the individual) completes. In so doing we hope we will raise a useful sum of money for all
our chosen charities and projects.
This is not a race and no team or individual is being asked to swim an unduly long distance. The event involves
each team swimming continuously for 55 minutes, one member only of the team being in the water at a time.
There are no hard and fast rules about how a team should organise itself - some may like to swim a length in
turn, others might want to split the time amongst them. All we ask is that inexperienced or out-of-condition
swimmers do not exceed their capacity.
