National Business House Relay 2017

The NBHR is on again in 2017 kicking off on the 12th June. A great way to socialise with your workmates, build team spirit and stay healthy!

How to join in 2017:

To enter a team, just select four workmates (plus 1 reserve) who will each swim 100m consecutively of a 25m pool. Decide the day and time (6am to 7pm Monday to Friday / 8am-7pm weekends) which suits your team to take part. Register at your local facility reception or email

It’s a timed relay. Pool staff will be on hand to welcome your team and time your relay. The contest this year is over five consecutive weeks (we took note of feedback) and your team is required to complete one relay each week. The results and current placings for all teams will be posted on the CLM website so that contestants can check out their progress each week.

Please note 2 significant changes to our rules since the competition last occured:

The competition will now run over a 7 week period. The final result is based on an aggregate (total) of your 6 best swims.

At the end of the seven weeks there will be a special prize-giving.

For entry costs talk to your local CLM reception. The cost involved will cover your weekly timed relay, as well as all your practice swims, and free sauna and spa use (where applicable) during the five weeks of the contest.

We are excited about the competition which has grown from a local idea to become a national and international event. We would love it if you teamed up with some workmates and joined the action.

To enter:

Select four team/staff members who will each swim 100 meters and one reserve.
Decide the day and time which suits your team to take part.
Talk to your local CLM aquatic centre staff about the details for your area.

The concept of the business house relay is to encourage team spirit among work colleagues while getting them active in a fun and healthy competition. Feedback from participants shows us that:

The relay was something that workmates talked about and looked forward to each week
People who had dropped out of active sport or regular exercise found themselves part of a team and felt motivated to get fit and stay active

We welcome your interest, your suggestions and

most of all, your participation.
