Swim Serpentine is an open water swimming event that is staged in the beautiful setting of the famous Serpentine in Hyde Park, the venue for the open water swimming competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games. 

This event will be suited to regular swimmers and those up for a challenge. With waved starts and no time limit, you’ll be able to take your time to complete the challenge of a lifetime. This mass participation swim will see 6,000 swimmers complete the challenge - you could call it the London Marathon of the swimming world.​
