Event Details

The Henley Mile takes place on Sunday 15th July at the stunning location of Temple Island Meadows just outside Henley-on-Thames.

This family friendly event has options for everyone aged from 8 years old and above – whether new to open water swimming or an experienced swimmer seeking a personal best:

  • Henley Mile - for swimmers age 14 and above
  • Suits vs Skins Challenge for swimmers age 14 and above who wish to complete the course twice, once wearing a wetsuit and once without
  • Henley Half Mile - for swimmers age 9 and above
  • Henley Splash 200m - for swimmers age 8-12

All events are downstream.

Adults can accompany children in the Henley Splash free of charge.

Please choose your event from the list below, there will then be an option to select which wave (or combination of waves for Suits vs Skins) you wish to swim in. There will be 6 different Mile waves throughout the day, allowing you to plan according to your travel and other commitments. Waves 2 & 3 are now full. 

This does mean that with the exception of the Junior Half Mile and Splash events, award presentations will not be made on the day. Your time will be available at the event and also sent to you by text. Full results will be available online after all waves are complete.

Your registration includes access to the Outdoor Swimmer Show where you, your friends and family can pick up tips and kit to enhance your open water swimming experience.
