Both Larkfield Leisure Centre and Tonbridge Swimming Pool are running exclusive Swimathon sessions on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 April from 6pm to 9pm. In the last two years Swimathon participants at both centres have raised over £12k for charity and the Swimathon Foundation - a fantastic effort!

The sponsorship money raised for this great national will give a helping hand to vulnerable and disadvantaged people in the UK and beyond. The Swimathon Weekend Challenges are designed to suit all levels of fitness, ability and age. You can choose to take on an individual 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k challenge or you can join forces with colleagues, friends or family members for a team 1.5k and 5k challenge. In fact, this year the staff at Larkfield Leisure Centre are entering the team challenge.

If you can't make a session over the Swimathon Weekend you can always register for Simply Swim; a challenge which allows you to swim your own chosen distance, at any pool, and at any time.

Martin Guyton, Chief Executive of tmactive said: "We were really pleased by the number of swimmers who regularly take part in our Swimathon events. Each year participants have a lot of fun whilst raising money for good causes."

You can register your interest in Swimathon 2017 by visiting, pick up a leaflet from Reception or call 0845 36 700 36.
