Thousands of swimmers will have the chance to swim one mile in open water in the mass-participation event. Every swimmer will be allocated to a specific start wave, with swimmers setting off at regular intervals during the day. All swimmers in the mass-participation mile must wear either a wetsuit or use a tow-float. Both wetsuit and tow-float hire will be available at the Serpentine on the day.

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?.
