The Swimathon website will turn itself into the hub where live scoreboards tracking each team’s average times, total distances and much more will be shown.
  • There are tons of ways you can show your team colours and support your fellow team swimmers. Share your latest training tips, or shout out to the rest of your team when in need of some last minute motivation.
