How does it work?
Starting from Tuesday 1st October you have 31 days to swim a total distance of 26.2 miles. You can do this wherever and whenever you want throughout the month, so whether you choose to swim 1 mile a day over 26 days at your local leisure centre or do one open water swim once a week at your local reservoir, get out there as much as you can and clock up the miles to complete the distance.

How can you track your miles?
Use our paper tracker (available in your welcome pack) and track your distance via:
              -FitBit, GPS watch or any other smart wear
              -Count your lengths and multiply by the length of the pool

How do you get your medal?
Once you’ve completed your distance simply let us know by returning your ‘completed distance form’, along with your sponsorship money or details of your online giving page. We will aim to send out your medal (and additional gifts if applicable) within 2 weeks of you returning your form.

More information about the challenge can be found on our FAQs document.
