Event description

Description

Mile For Megan is a charity swimming event to raise funds for The Jack & Jill Children's Foundation & The Holy Family Pre-School Sligo. We're looking to get as many people as possible to swim a mile on the day.

To participate in the swim please register by purchasing a ticket for the hour you would like to swim. All funds raised will be split 50\50 between these two charities.

Those not swimming but would like to support the event can do so by visiting our gofundme page - https://www.gofundme.com/mile-for-megan

The event is for anyone who can swim at least 2 lengths of a 25m pool during a session. The event is not for beginners who require lessons.

A mile calculated in metres is 1,609m. Our “Mile For Megan” Challenge will be 1,600 metres - 25m pool – 64 lengths. Swimmers will not be permitted to stop mid pool or along the ropes.

Depending on fitness and ability it could take from 20mins to 1 hour to complete the mile.

You can vary your stroke between frontcrawl and breaststroke throughout the mile, at the start of each length. For health and safety reasons, backstroke or butterfly are NOT allowed.

The lanes will be split into fast, medium and slow paced so you are in a lane with others swimming at the same pace as you. Please use the contact option to send a guestimate completion time and we will place you in a lane with others swimming the same time as you. Please arrive 30 minutes before your swim time to check in!

Thanks for your support!

John & Andrea.
