Team up and get ready for Britain's biggest swimming event

Our aim is to get Britain swimming in 2014. We want to make the nation fitter and healthier by inspiring more people to swim more often by 2015. So this September, we’re bringing back SwimBritain - a nationwide relay event for everyone. With ten event locations, including one open water course, and over 150 training pools, this is set to be the swimming event of 2014. It’s not to be missed.

Plus if you are a British Gas customer, you can get an exclusive 20% saving for you and your family when you sign up to an event. Simply insert your British Gas account number once you've chosen your event.

So what exactly is SwimBritain?

  • It's a swimming relay event for teams of four.
  • There’s also SwimBritain 500 for families and less confident swimmers.
  • You can raise money for a charity of your choice, such as our partner, Shelter.
  • Celebrity swimmers will take part and cheer everyone on at each of the event venues.
  • There's even an on-line training programme.
