26 great photos from Horsham's Swimarathon ... Do you recognise anyone?

Thirty teams took part in Horsham Lions Club’s 13th Swimarathon at Horsham’s Pavilions in the Park leisure centre on Sunday (March 24).

Among highlights of the day was the fact that – for the second year running – a team from Atlantis Swimming Club beat their event record of swimming 212 lengths of the main pool in the 55 minutes allocated for each session of the event. The team on average swam a length of the pool every 16 seconds.

Over the past 12 years the Swimarathon has raised more than £82,000 which has been donated to a number of local schools, organisations and charities.

The 30 teams who took part this year swam a total of 3,561 lengths in the 25 metre pool.

For the second year running, the Swimarathon was raising funds for the Horsham and Crawley Branch of The Samaritans who have just celebrated their 51st anniversary.

Horsham Lions Club president Miles Loveday thanked all the teams who took part along with their supporters and sponsors for pledging money to the charity.
