With charity places available in 3 different event distances, there's something for everyone!

  • Half mile: a great entry-level event for those new to open water swimming
  • One mile: one full lap of the famous Serpentine lake
  • Two miles: ideal for swimmers looking to test themselves with two laps of the Serpentine

Swim to Beat Macular Disease. We’ll send you a free charity t-shirt and support you every stroke of the way!

  • 2-mile registration Fee: £50 / Minimum sponsorship pledge: £350

Please note: registration fees are non-refundable. There will be a requirement to reach at least 50% of the target approximately 1 month before the event.

Safety first: A water safety team is on stand by throughout the event, but it is recommended that you complete your chosen distance in full before the event, and also that you have practiced swimming in open water beforehand.

General entry places are now SOLD OUT.
