THE HENLEY SWIM FESTIVAL
14th July 2019
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.
