This is a great place to start!

If you would like to find out more, see the Swim Serpentine web pages or contact for registration information and to sign you up in the registration portal. We will support you with a training plan, and publicity for your fundraising. The fundraising commitment is £130 which includes £30 entry plus £100 towards the Sports Campus fundraising target. 

Our Sports Campus is going to start being built in Autumn 2019 but we are still £700,000 away from being able to pay the final bill. We are SO PROUD that the funds we have raised so far, we have raised independently. This is a whole-school effort, and we hope you can be part

Route around the Serpentine

The routes:

  • Half-Mile Swim: Taking in half a lap of the Serpentine, there is plenty of time to swim this distance at your leisure with a friend, race your mum or dad or just to try out an open water swimming event with an achievable but for some still challenging swim.
  • One-Mile Swim: A classic distance in the world of open water swimming events. This swim takes place on the same course as the London 2012 Marathon Swimming Olympic event, with one full lap around the Serpentine making up the one-mile swim. This is the most popular of all the swim distances at Swim Serpentine with swimmers taking anything from 20 minutes through to one hour to complete the swim.
