Dundee Swimarathon 2018

Last year nearly 400 swimmers completed the relay swim event organised by the Rotary Club of Dundee to coincide with the world’s biggest one day swimming event. Rotary clubs across the globe participate in events to raise money for the international End Polio Now campaign and other Rotary causes.
The Dundee event attracted teams from all parts of the community including three schools; Invergowrie Primary School, St Johns Academy and High School of Dundee; six swimming clubs including Dundee City Aquatics, Menzieshill Whitehall, Dunfermline Waterpolo Club, Monifieth and YABBA; charities such as Brae Riding for the Disabled, Help for Kids and Tayberry along with many other sports clubs, teams of work colleagues and Rotary families. Each team had a 25 minute slot over the course of the afternoon to complete as many lengths as possible. Participants swam over 63800 metres which is equivalent to a distance of 39.7 miles.
