The Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival takes place on Sunday 11th July 2021 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.
All starts will be rolling starts. Please chose a start window. You will be able to start at any time within the window, allowing you to plan according to your travel and other commitments.

4x Mile Challenge swimmers must start their first mile between 09:30 and 10:15. Subsequent miles can be started at any time, but please note there are no Mile starts between 12:30 and 13:45 so please plan your swims around this break.

Charity Places - Teenage Cancer Trust
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, entertainment and whole day of fun by the river.
Please carefully read clause 5 (cancellation by you) and clause 6 (cancellation by the organisers) of our terms and conditions
