This year’s Skipton Swimarathon will take place between 5th - 9th October 2022.

GROW Limited has been named as the beneficiary of the 2022 Skipton Swimarathon. The Guernsey charity, which supports people with a learning disability, is looking to raise funds for the redevelopment of its Coutanchez site. Money raised at this year’s event will contribute towards fitting out the training café, which will be used to prepare and serve fresh produce on site.

The first Swimarathon organising committee was formed by The Lions Club of Guernsey, Guernsey Round Table and Variety Club of Guernsey under the chairmanship of Harry Bisson in 1977, with the aim of raising funds to put back into the community. Forty-five years later and the event has grown from 1,000 swimmers to over 2,500 in 2021, raising over £1,820,000 for Guernsey charities. The Skipton Swimarathon is run jointly by the Lions Club of Guernsey and Guernsey Round Table and sponsored by local bank Skipton International.

The dates for the Skipton Swimarathon 2022 are 5th to 9th October. Registration is now open!
