    Jubilee River Swim

    22 Somerville Rd, Eton, Windsor SL4 6PB, UKView event
    6 reviews
    About the event
    From the organiser

    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.

      Second year of doing the Jubilee Relays and believe it or not, it gets better and better. Wave 4 was ambitious for me, but my relay partner got me out of the woods. Fantastic event, and superb marshalls. Can't recoomend this event enough for any open water swimming fanatics.#racecheck #jubileerelays
    • Did the event in 2018

      O.K. so a 10k swim is not for everyone but if your going to try one, I would recommend this event but be quick, it sells out every year.This year saw a change in logistics which wasn't ideal. Parking at the race course was easy with plenty of space but on finishing this year, getting back to your car was a bus ride away. Not a major issue but preferred the logistic of the previous year.The race briefing is always quick and concise delivered with humor and not long after you are in the river. The race is always made up of 4 waves, with the last wave being the faster swimmers. As they set off every 30 mins, there is not too much congestion as the race progresses. The race is also broken out into 4 sections where you need to exit the river (to avoid the weirs) so you can either attempt it solo or as part of a team, picking an choosing how many sections you want to do. Even though this is a river, don’t expect too much in terms of a helpful current.If your tempted but think 10k is too long, take part as a team, if you do i’m sure you’ll be back for the whole thing.

      There's a reason that this event always sells out super fast! Brilliant organisation, good marshalls (land and water), great water quality and a really beautiful course! Top notch event!

      Third Henley mile, my first was what got me hooked on open water swimming 😀
      Well organised and fun day, the open water show is good to look around as well. Persuaded my husband to join me this time too. He’d only swum in open water once before and not even a mile, but everyone is so lovely and supportive he enjoyed it too.
    • Did the event in 2018

      Amazing family day out. With separate 'waves' spread throughout the day, it's easy to pick a time that works for you. Multiple distances available, so there's something for everyone. It's not ultra-competitive, although timing chips are used. For a lot of people, it was their first open water event.

      One of the few events where non-wetsuit swimmers are made equally welcome.

      Having the Outdoor Swimmer Show on site is a massive bonus too. A wide range of stalls and guest speakers makes it even more special.

      We'll definitely be back as a family in 2019

    • Did the event in 2018

      Nice setting and wonderful atmosphere - lovely weather helped but I'd recommend racing in the middle of the day - as the crowds are best then

      Everything was close to perfection, organisation, staff, registration, the spa at the end, etc. My only recommendation would be to make the changing tents larger as there were many of us at the same time. Apart from that it was great, very recommendable, I will do it again for sure.
    • Did the event in 2018

      I completed the Two Mile Serpentine Swim & honestly I’m not really a swimmer so if you’re thinking of this as your first open water swim I wrote a blog with my full experience doing exactly that https://www.baze187.com/the-serpentine-swim-2018/

      This was a great event though, & there’s loads of marshals in kayaks out there looking after you.

      Medal was pretty quirky

    • Did the event in 2018

      I did this event as part of the London Classics series. I’m really glad I did. It was well organised from the point of registration up to when you left at the end of the event. The safety kayakers were amazing and always on hand to help if you stopped. Loved the event
