Join us from 22 March to 22 June 2022 and swim the distance of the English Channel towards a healthier you. 

22 miles. 12 weeks. One life-changing challenge. 

Why take part in Swim22? 

Swimming is for every body and everybody. And, this spring,we're swimming the distance of the English Channel for everybody living with diabetes. 

With three distances to choose from, you can take the challenge at your own pace, in your own local pool over three months - individually or as a team:

  • 11 miles: ‘The Half’ - half the distance to France, still an impressive feat.
  • 22 miles: ‘The Full’ - the distance of the English Channel, our most popular choice.
  • 44 miles: ‘The Double’ - to France and back, for the more adventurous.

Whichever distance you choose, there’s no better feeling than diving into a challenge you’ll love, knowing each length you complete will lead to a healthier you and a better future for people affected by diabetes. 

Sign up today

We’d love for you to be part of our Swim22 team next year, and we’ll be there to support you every stroke, length and mile of the way.
