Roger Allsopp, Skipton Swimarathon Ambassador, will be entering three teams into this year’s event – the Channel Swimmers, the Support Crew Team and the Guernsey Masters.
The Channel Swimmers Roger, Davey le Marquand, Iain Lowe, Bec Simmons and Naomi Wakeford are all acclaimed open water swimmers.
Roger is very excited about this year’s event which takes place at Beau Sejour between 3 and 7 October 2012.
He said “I don’t think that it is too far from the truth for me to say that it was the Swimarathon many years ago that got me swimming again after a break of many years.”
“If I hadn’t done that I might not have started swimming with the Masters Club, and I might not have swum the Channel,” he said.
The Skipton Swimarathon is open to everyone, you don’t have to be a cross channel swimmer!
It’s all about having fun and raising money for local causes.
If you haven’t entered yet, it’s open to team of four or more, and start fundraising.
