This event is aimed at swimmers who would like to include a serious long distance challenge in their summer open water swimming season. It’s not a race, but an opportunity for you to challenge yourself and take in the stunning scenery at the same time. The swim is organised into a group format, with teamwork making this an exciting and satisfying event.
There are a limited number of non-wetsuit places available for this swim. If you wish to be considered for a non-wetsuit place, there are only a few places left. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to register your interest.

– We would recommend that if you are not presently able to complete a 1500m swim in under 45mins it might be as well to target a shorter event and then build for the 2017 Thames Marathon Bridge to Bridge
– We will have a few training programmes and test swims (you can do in your local pool) that will detail how fast you are likely to swim on the day
– If you are new to open water swimming, but an experienced pool swimmer, we would recommend that you select 1 wave below your capability
