    This is your lane. Your Challenge. Your Swimathon!

    Take your marks... Swimathon is back in 2017 for the 30th year running! This is your lane, your challenge, your chance to raise money for Marie Curie. Marie Curie are Swimathon’s Charity Partner, they help people living with any terminal illness, and their families. As the world's biggest fundraising swimming event, you can jump in the pool and make a difference for Marie Curie at over 600 pools.

    Which challenge will you choose?

    Whether it's as a team or going it solo, there's a range of Swimathon challenge distances so that there's always a right one for you.Swimathon Image, Girl looking down her lane while adjusting her goggles

    Individual 1.5k - A great challenge for novice swimmers, or those that prefer to push their speed on shorter distances.

    Individual 2.5k - The perfect challenge for the intermediate swimmer who trains regularly. A way to push your boundaries and give yourself a goal to commit to training for.

    Individual 5k - This is the ultimate Swimathon challenge, to complete the 5k distance takes dedication, commitment and a good training programme.

    Team 1.5k - Take on 60 lengths of a 25m pool in a relay with your friends, your family or your colleagues. Split it as you like, shorter distances for the novice or longer for the kids.

    Team 5k - Make up a team of 2 to 5 swimmers to tackle the ultimate Swimathon distance. Split it evenly between you or break down the distances according to your abilities and get everyone involved!

    SimplySwim - Whether it’s one of our set distances or a number of lengths somewhere between, SimplySwim lets you choose the distance, the time and the venue that suits you best to get involved with Swimathon and raise money.

    Zoggs Swim Diaries: New Year, Old Me

    Deborah Herridge is training to swim the English Channel in the summer of 2017. She's been sharing her journey with us from 30 lengths in the pool to a 21 mile Channel Swim, and now here's the latest from Deborah.

    'New Year, New Me', I’m seeing this everywhere, but what I would like is 'New Year, Old Me', the '2015 Me' for 2017 please.

    The 'Me' that progressed from a 7-mile swimmer to a swimmer who could complete more than 14 miles.

    A 'Me' who could swim in very tough conditions.

    A 'Me' who was fit and healthy who would never give up.

    A 'Me' that when the going got tough, thoughts of the charities she was doing it for and all the people that had generously sponsored her and were supporting from the sea and shore, she would never give up for them either.

    A 'Me' that had a brilliant crew and safety boat pilot supporting her, willing her on, a 'Me' that will not stop for them and all the work that have put into getting her here.

    So that is the 'Me' that I wish for 2017, a
