The Henley Mile
The Henley Mile is a straight line, downstream, River Thames open water swim, held over the Henley Royal Regatta boomed course. It is a perfect family day by the river, at one of the most idyllic locations on the Thames. There are three distances to choose from – the mile, half-mile and 200m, and events are open to adults and children age 8 and above.
The day is for everybody, there are categories for those that wish to race hard, and categories for those that want to enjoy their surroundings and take it a little easier. The swim can be completed with or without a wetsuit, or the Suits vs Skins challenge gives the opportunity to swim the mile twice, with a wetsuit and without. Elite swimmers can be seen up close and personal as they compete hard for the coveted Henley Mile title and prize money.
All entrants will receive a finisher’s medal, a completion time, and of course a nutritious CLIF Bar.
Entry into any of the swims also includes free entry for participants and their supporters to the Outdoor Swimmer Show that takes place alongside the Henley Mile.
