Make a splash and a difference this year

Swimmers can take the plunge at Harborough Leisure Centre in March for the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief charity Swimathon.

The event is taking place in more than 600 pools across the UK from March 21-23, including the town’s leisure centre in Northampton Road. People can choose from 1.5k, 2.5k or 5k individual distances or take on a team challenge.
