Doggy Paddle Swimathon

How far can you swim in a year?

The Hearing Dogs Swimathon is an event that is designed for swimmers of all abilities, and can be tailored to suit you!

Whether you swim regularly for fitness, swim every now and then for fun or haven’t dipped your toes in a pool for a while, this event can be designed to complement all levels of fitness.

We are really interested to see how far we can swim in total and will be keeping a tally of the distance!
