Over the course of June and July, 130 swimmers joined our ClimateGames challenge to support Plastic Free July. Between them, they completed more than 1600 activities, swam a total distance of more than 4000km and accumulated more than 1500 hours in the water. By taking part, they removed more than 40kg of plastic from the ocean – or something like 4000 plastic water bottles.

In August, we’re running two challenges. The first is a straightforward league – simply record all your swims by distance and see how your swimming compares with others. The second, which runs through until the end of September, is a team event. For our 4-Rivers Challenge, pick a team (the team names are the four longest rivers in England) and record how long you swim for. For this one, it’s time in the water that counts, not distance. Why not join both?
To take part, you need to download the ClimateGames app onto your phone. You can then either record your swims manually or allow the app to connect to your sports watch and update automatically.
