Follow in the footsteps of 2012 Olympic legends Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte by diving into the London Aquatics Centre pool and signing up for Marathon Swims 2023 on Saturday, November 11th.
This is the ultimate swimming challenge where participants can select from distances of 1km, 5km, 10km, or team up for the 10km race, all using innovative RFID chip technology to deliver real-time and precise results.
This unique format means no more tedious lap counting and repetitive laps, providing an engaging and thrilling experience for swimmers and spectators alike.
In addition to the excitement of the swim, Marathon Swims has teamed up with charity Alzheimer's Society for swimmers to raise money for a good cause.
Charity places are also available at half the price of £54.50 instead of £109 per entry, ensuring swimmers secure their spot without having to rely on the Marathon 10k ballot.
Keith Griffiths, General Manager at London Aquatics Centre, said: “Marathon Swims takes swimming to a whole new level, testing swimmers' endurance and stamina in a marathon-style format.
“The event caters to all levels, from beginners to seasoned swimmers and is also for a fantastic cause, therefore we are honoured to be hosting the event once again.”
