With over half of the lanes now booked for next year’s Swimarathon, the event organisers, the Lions Club of Jersey, are urging potential swimmers not to delay registering. This will ensure participants get to swim during their preferred time slot at the event, which takes place between 13–17 March 2013 at Les Quennevais Sports Centre.
Jersey’s longest running charity event is a great family day and a welcome opportunity to work off those extra Christmas pudding pounds while raising much-needed funds for local charities.
Lions Club of Jersey President, Andrew Pearce said: ‘The excellent response that we’ve already had for next year’s Swimarathon shows the great affection that Jersey has for this event. It is certainly a fitting way to mark the 50th anniversary of the Lions Club in Jersey, and with only three months to go we encourage any other aspiring swimmers to get signed up soon.
Stuart Rutledge, Head of Global Trust, RBC Wealth Management commented: ‘Next year’s Swimarathon will be my first experience of this wonderful Jersey institution. I am especially looking forward to taking part with the RBC Wealth Management team and my family on the Sunday.’
Information and registrations are available from the Swimarathon Administrator, PO Box 397, St Helier, Jersey JE4 9ZX or via e-mail Swimarathon@jerseymail.co.uk.
