Upcoming Swim Challenges

The Great British Swim Challenge

Pool Battle

It took Ross Edgley 157 days to swim around the UK. For our latest swim challenge you will work as a team with other swimmers from your pool to complete the same distance Ross swam in half the time, 78 days! Are you up to the challenge?

This swim challenge asks you to join together with other swimmers in your pool to swim 2,676.76km faster than the other Tees Active pools! You have from 1st September till 17th November to complete this challenge but the fastest pool wins!

North Pole Swim Challenge

Individual Challenge

The small city of North Pole is situated to the South East of Fairbanks, Alaska. It was given the name in 1952 after the area was bought by a development company hoping to attract toy manufacturers.

Today the local post office receives hundreds and thousands of letters to Santa Claus each year and tourists flock to the area to visit Santa Claus House and the Arctic Bar.

Your challenge is to zig zag your way through the town, starting at Hotel North Pole, you'll swing by Santa Clause house (don't forget to wave to Santa as you pass), then past the city's three schools before head North, finishing up at North Pole plaza on Santa Claus Lane.

You will have from 26th November till 2nd January to swim 4987m!
