About this event

Swim Serpentine, organised by London Marathon Events Ltd, is the biggest open water swimming event in the country. It has rapidly grown to become the UK’s top open water swimming event with more than 6,000 entries last year!

We’re thrilled to partner with London Marathon Events and bring you the very first Children with Cancer UK Swim Serpentine this September. The day will feature open water swimming events in the Serpentine Lake in Hyde Park over a range of distances, including ½ mile, one mile, two miles, six miles and a free Wellness Festival in Hyde Park.

Secure a charity place.

We have places in the ½ mile, one mile and two mile distances. Whether you are taking part in your first open water swim or want to complete the London Classic we’ve got a place for you. Find the details and registration form below!

The two mile distance has sold out but if you would like to join our waiting list please fill out the form below. We will get in touch if a place becomes available.
