Open Water Swimathon is an open water swimming event like no other that raises vital funds for Cancer Research UK and Marie Curie.

It's the perfect challenge for both experienced open water swimmers, and those transferring from the pool to the open water for the first time!

Open Water Swimathon took place on Saturday 8th - Sunday 9th September 2018.
