Swim through the Jubilee River, in one of the nation's most notorious swims. At 10km in length it is not too taxing and suitable for swimmers of all calibers, the course takes you from Boulters Lock to Pockocks Lane in Eton. Come for the Epic medal or to take part in a truly memorable event.

Jubilee River Swim route

Again for 2019, swim registration and pre event car parking will be at the fabulous Royal Windsor Racecourse.

Swimmers will be transported to the swim start area, about a 20 minute drive away in Taplow. It's a 400m walk to the start line, where you can leave your swim bags (you receive these at swim registration on the morning), and we'll transport your kit to the finish village. This a short stroll from the finish line in Eton. Here you'll also find changing facilities, toilets, refreshments and your shuttle buses back to Royal Windsor Racecourse. Once back at the racecourse there'll be further changing facilities, showers and your cars.

Transport is provided for swimmers, with an additional £5 charge to spectators as space allows. You can book these whilst entering the event or you can login to the entry portal (don't delete your entry confirmation email) and add tickets anytime whilst availability allows.
