My story

In order to swim the equivalent of one mile, a swimmer must complete 66 lengths of a 25-metre pool. In order to swim five miles, 330 lengths of the same pool are needed.

I know this, because it's precisely what I intend to do for the next twelve months.

My reasons are simple: for every mile I swim, I'll donate £5 to Alzheimer's Research UK, and for every month I complete this challenge, I'll update a blog at:

To keep me honest, I'm entering a "Race at Your Pace" challenge every month and submitting the training evidence to them, and being sent a shiny medal in the process.

If you'd like to support me, you can follow my progress here and on my blog.

Thank you for checking out my page. Making a donation is fast, easy and secure thanks to Give as you Live Donate. They'll take your donation and pass it onto Alzheimer's Research UK.
