London’s Hyde Park will be the host for Swim Serpentine – the venue for London 2012’s open water swimming competition. The event is fast becoming the UK’s largest outdoor swimming event, with 6,000 swimmers all taking part in the one mile challenge (the equivalent of 63 lengths of a 25m pool!).
All swimmers must wear either a wetsuit or use a tow-float, and will be provided with a coloured swimming hat that corresponds to your start time. Both wetsuits and tow-floats will be available to hire on the day. There’s loads of training advice to prepare you for the event.
