Superb event . Great to be in central London and pre-race very straightforward. Real big event feel to the start and swim was good - easy to navigate and nice finish. Hot tubs and finish area great with lots of bargains at the Huub stall.

One of those unmissable events in London if you like sports, particularly if you love open water swimming. As usual, great location, excellent organisation, good environment and this year an amazing weather. What else?.
