The Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival takes place on Sunday 12th July 2020 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.
PLEASE NOTE ALL WAVE TIMES ARE PROVISIONAL AND SUBJECT TO CHANGE
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.
We are pleased to be working with Teenage Cancer Trust as an Official Charity Partner for the event this year. Young people with cancer need specialised nursing care and support. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity providing this, but right now they can only help half of the young people diagnosed with cancer. We have joined forces with them to help and YOU can play a role by fundraising! Sign up for a FREE Charity Place today and pledge to fundraise to help with their incredible work. Each charity place swimmer will receive a fundraising pack in the post and lots more support. Select one of the Teenage Cancer Trust options below.
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.
