The 2021 Skipton Swimarathon has broken all records!

The Skipton Swimarathon has broken all records, having raised in excess of £80,000 this year.

The Committee chose to jointly support the Priaulx Premature Baby Foundation and the Citizen's Advice Guernsey as the 2021 beneficiaries.

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-four years later and the event has grown from 1,000 swimmers to over 2,500 in 2020, raising over £1,750,000 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.
