Children with Cancer UK Swim Serpentine is a one-day open water swimming festival staged in the heart of London. Organised by London Marathon Events, the festival is held in and around the beautiful Serpentine in Hyde Park, the venue for the open water swimming competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Children with Cancer UK Swim Serpentine is already a must-do event in the open water swimming calendar.
The event offers a safe, inclusive environment for swimmers of all abilities, who we look forward to welcoming to the Serpentine in September.

Swim Serpentine routes
Half-Mile Swim: This is a half lap of the Serpentine. Perfect for those after a fast and furious race, as well as those looking for a shorter, more manageable (but still tough!) swim.
One-Mile Swim: The classic distance. This is easily the most popular race of the festival, consisting of one lap around the lake.
Two-Mile Swim: A more challenging swim for those who want one, this is two laps around the lake. Aimed at those with previous One Mile swim expereince who want to really test themselves.
