Take on the Aspire Channel swim challenge 2021

August 12 2021

I took part in the Aspire Swim Challenge last year and felt so chuffed when I had completed the distance. I felt so much fitter and was doing something to help others.


Set yourself a new challenge, get fit and make a difference this September with the Aspire Channel Swim!

This year, the Aspire Channel Swim is splashing down here at Summerfields and we want you to get on board. Take on the distance of the Channel (22 miles) over 12 weeks in your swim sessions – it’s a big challenge, but we know you can do it! You can swim the distance however you like from 27th September-20th December, so whether you want to swim all 22 miles by yourself or combine the distance with your friends or family, the Aspire Channel Swim is the perfect way to get fit for Christmas, and raise money for a fantastic charity. 

The swimming pool is 25 metres long so in total you will need to complete 1416 lengths or 118 lengths per week.

Aspire is a national charity that provides practical help to people who have been paralysed by Spinal Cord Injury. Over the past 20 years since the challenge launched swimmers have swum a combined distance of over 1.5 million miles and raised an unbelievable £6 MILLION for Aspire!
