The Jubilee River is a man made flood relief channel cutting the corner off the River Thames between Boulters Lock near Maidenhead and Pococks Lane in Eton, and the distance in between is 10km! Along the length of the Jubilee River there are three weirs that swimmers must avoid, so, getting out to go around the weirs means you'll only need to swim 9.5k! The weirs make the perfect place for our fabulous feed stations along the way and break up the course nicely into four segments, making up a relay event. Solo or team entry.

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.
Questions & answers
- Hello I am very much looking forward to doing this swim. Can anyone tell me how much time you are allowed to spend in each transition? How are the times worked out do they include the transition times? Thanks in advanceHey there, just to let you know you can spend as long as you need at the feed stations, however, the timer does not stop, so if you're looking for a quick time I would recommend spending as little time at the each station. All the best!
