DIABETES UK is looking for people from across the North West of England to take on the swimming challenge of the year, Swim22, between February 22 and May 22, 2020.

Discover your inner champion by swimming 22 miles – the width of the English Channel – in your local pool, at your own pace.

The idea is to clock up the required distance in repeated visits to the pool across the 12 weeks between 22 February and 22 May. 

If you don’t feel ready for 22 miles you can also choose to swim 11 or 44 miles.

To sign up, just visit diabetes.org.uk/swim22.
