Could you swim the width of the English Channel and raise funds for Age UK Teesside to reduce Loneliness and Isolation in Teesside?

The Channel is 20.7 miles across at the Strait of Dover, this equates to 1333 lengths of a standard 25 meter swimming pool, but don’t worry we are not asking you to do this all on the same day!

Set your own targets, whether its number of lengths per swim visit, number of swim visits, building up your swimming or just being more active.

To take part please complete the entry form below, your record card and sponsor forms will be sent to you.

You will complete your challenge in your own time, in your local leisure centre or pool of your choice. 

Entry is free (we ask that participants raise sponsorship for Age UK Teesside).
