The Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival takes place on Sunday 14th July 2019 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. All events are downstream.
Please choose your event from the Entry Options below, there will then be an opportunity 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 for swimmers age 14+, allowing you to plan according to your travel and other commitments. Wave 2 will be a Women Only wave.
4x Mile Challenge (waves 1,3,4 & 6)
Suits vs Skins (any 2 non-consecutive mile waves)
Adults can accompany children in the Henley Splash free of charge.
Prizes will be awarded for junior events only. Presentations for the junior half mile (age groups 9-13 & 14-17) and the Henley Splash (age groups 8-10 & 11-12) will be made shortly after the events. The results for the junior mile and suits vs skins will not be available until after wave 6 is complete, and awards will therefore be sent out by post. All swim times will be available at the event and also sent to you by text. Full results will be available online after all waves are complete.
Swim entry includes access to the entire Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival for you and your spectators, where you can experience live music, food and drink, exhibitors, equipment testing, endless pool, and whole day of fun by the river.
We are also offering camping on the Saturday night, at the event site. You'd be hard pressed to find a better view for your pre-swim morning coffee.
