Swim to Man...but stay on the Fylde

Have your say

Fancy swimming to the Isle of Man – without dipping your toe in the Irish Sea?

Swimmers are being challenged to take up the challenge between August and October at Palatine Leisure Centre.

The new “swimtag” technology measures the distance you travel in the water and now leisure chiefs are challenging people to clock up the 101km distance.

All registered swimmers completing the 101km swim by October 31 will be entered into a draw to win a waterproof MP3 player and two runners up will receive a Swimtag t-shirt.

To enter, all the swimmers need to do is pick up a wristband from reception, wear the wristband during their swim and then register online at http://www.swimtag.net/ and join the Isle of Man challenge.
