Swim Serpentine

Swim Serpentine is a new one-mile open water swimming event for 2016.

This fantastic new event is held in Hyde Park, London, giving you the opportunity to swim in the venue used at the open water swimming competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games.

On Saturday 24 September, 6,000 swimmers will have the chance to swim one mile in open water in the mass participation event. Every swimmer will be allocated to a specific start wave and there will be a total of 18 waves of swimmers setting off at regular intervals during the day. All swimmers in the mass participation mile must wear either a wetsuit or use a tow-float. Both wetsuit and tow-float hire will be available at the Serpentine on the day.

Sign up to the ballot today for a chance to swim in this new event. If you are successful in gaining a ballot place, we just ask that you fundraise as much as you can for Bliss. With no fundraising pressure and the same guidance from us here at Team Bliss, dive in and help support the 90,000 babies born premature or sick each year.
