Open Water Swimming in 2016

Added on by Philip Collins.



Thought it might be worth mentioning a few open water swims that some OTSers have already booked.  Equally, if you are planning a swim and want some company, write it up on the OTS Open Water Facebook page


7th August - Henley Bridge to Bridge

A really long open water swim in Henley, but a really popular challenge, in a beautiful location.


4th September - London Dock 2 Dock solo and relay

A local open water long swim the new Dock 2 Dock 10k in London on 4th September.  It starts at the Excel, past London City Airport, into King George V dock and back.  You can do it by yourself, or as a relay team. I'm happy to set up relay teams if you want to send me your name.


24/25th September - Swim Serpentine

A new open water swim in Hyde Park (where we regularly train in the summer) with a ballot open now for 1 mile swim on the Saturday.  On Sunday 25 September, the British Open Water Swimming Championships events will be held over a 3.2km course. Wetsuits will not be required. You'll be able to enter that in March.
