Would you like to raise money for our DPT Charity this Sunday?

Posted by Devon Partnership Trust in Charity, News on 1st September, 2022

On Sunday 4 September at 9am, there will be a SwimathLon Charity event at Teignmouth Beach to help raise money for DPT Charity, Devon Recovery Learning Community and Age UK.

The SwimathLon is an open water swimming event open to anyone over the age of eight years old. You will need to arrive at 8.30am to register and attend a safety briefing before the swim starts at 9am.

You will have the option to swim the below lengths either solo or as part of a team:

  • One lap (500m) - solo swim only
  • Three laps (1500m)
  • Five laps (2.5k)
  • Ten laps (5km)
  • To enter a solo distance it is £25 and a team entry is £15 per person.

To start, you will be required to swim out to the starting point. The rectangualr course will be marked with large yachting buoys and you will need to to swim clockwise. Once you have counted your last lap, the last right hand turn will be marked with a green buoy. This marks your 'swim to the shore line' finish.
