Swimmers lap up annual distance challenge

​KEEN swimmers have the opportunity to take on an exciting challenge at Bilgoman Aquatic Centre.

Mundaring Shire's initiative – Lap Lovers - is a personal challenge program designed to be flexible enough to encourage all swimmers to take part without the pressure of competition, but challenging enough to be interesting.

Participants record swimming distances and are able to compare them with other known distances. For example, 5000 laps of Bilgoman is the equivalent of swimming from Fremantle to Busselton. If you were to swim 760 laps, you might consider it training for the English Channel swim!  

The whole pool (double lanes) is dedicated to lap swimming Monday to Friday from 5.30am to 8.30am.

While lane ropes are moved at 8.30am, one lane remains dedicated to lap swimming until 6.30pm and two lanes from 6.30pm to 8pm.

The best times for lap swimming on weekdays are before 9.30am, between 12 and 1pm and after 6pm and extended lap space is available when lesson are not using lanes.

On Saturday and Sunday and public holidays the dedicated time across the whole pool is from 7am to 8.30am and two lanes are reserved from 8.30am to 11am.

So grab your goggles and towel and register your interest by completing the registration form.
