Mayday Swim Challenge 2019

Swim for the RNLI

Set yourself the ultimate challenge this May by swimming one of our famous coastal waterways. Take on the English Channel, the mouth of the Tamar or any other distance of your choice.

Don’t worry – you won’t need to enter the open water and you don’t have to do it all in one go. You’ll split the distance into lengths of your local swimming pool and keep going until you reach your target. Get your friends and family to sponsor your epic feat and feel great for making a difference this Mayday.

Pick a distance to swim: take on the ultimate challenge and swim the channel or choose your own local coastline or waterway and use our calculation to work out how many lengths you need to swim.

Split your chosen distance into lengths: swim at your local leisure centre and keep going until you reach your target.

Get sponsors. Set up a JustGiving page and link it to our team page:

Alternatively you can use one of our sponsorship forms to gather support and help kit our lifesavers.
