Join CRUK and take on this brand new one mile swim through the Serpentine.

Located in the heart of Hyde Park, at the same location that held the open water Swim at the London 2012 Olympics, the Swim Serpentine is a must do event for all keen swimmers out there. Brought to you by the same company that puts on the world famous Virgin Money London marathon, this is an event that guarantees a fantastic experience.

Swimming one mile is the equivalent of 64 lengths of a 25m pool. Up to the challenge? Join our team now.

Join our team, join the fight and let’s beat cancer.
