The Henley Classic


30th June 2019

The Henley Swim is a celebration of mid-summer. It is a unique opportunity to swim one of the most famous and beautiful stretches of open water in the world, at what we believe is the most beautiful time of the day, dawn.

It is unique in that it is a straight line point to point swim (ie: no turns) and takes advantage of the 2.1km boomed course of the Henley Royal Regatta.

Attracting global entries, why not be part of the fun. Registrations opening soon for full details and to enter the race please click here.

The Henley Mile is a straight line downstream River Thames swimming event, held over the Henley Royal Regatta boomed course. This family event, which is held throughout the day, features a number of distance options for all ages and abilities from age 8+ including mile, half mile and 200m.

As well as races, we offer a non-competitive sporting category which is ideal for anyone looking to complete the course in their own time, without the pressure of being part of a race. All entrants receive a completion time and finisher medal.

Entry to any of the swimming events also includes free entry to the Outdoor Swimmer Show for participants and their family/supporters.

Swimmers can choose to swim the course twice, once in a wet suit and once without, to see what difference a wet suit makes to them.

You can also see Elite swimmers racing for the Henley Mile title and prize money, a rare opportunity to see such fast and skillful swimming at close quarters.
