Get 50% off SwimBritain and the chance to compete in the Commonwealth Games Pool

Now in its second year, SwimBritain is a relay challenge for teams of four, taking place at Tollcross International Swimming Centre in Glasgow on Sunday 28th September 2014. If you are lucky, you will even be able to meet Hannah Miley, Commonwealth Champion and SwimBritain ambassador, who will be at the event.

There are two distances: SwimBritain 1000, where each team member swims 250m four times, or SwimBritain 500, where each team member swims four legs of 125m. The pool is set up as in an open water event, so you won't be able to touch the walls during the swim, and would be a great target to train towards.

And here is another good reason to take part. If you enter SSCLUB50 when you sign up you will get 50% off the entry fee of £40 for the whole team. If you are an exisiting British Gas customer, you will get a further discount.

In Glasgow there are free adult coached sessions available in the run up to the event:
