London Marathon Events hosts Swim Serpentine
On Saturday 17th September LME will be hosting Swim Serpentine in Hyde Park. This is the UK’s biggest one-day open water swimming festival. Although the Serpentine is only a one-mile round swim there will be four different event distances on offer on the day; a half mile, one mile, two miles or for the incredibly dedicated a six mile swim that is suitable for any and all abilities.
On the day, The Swim Serpentine course will be marked very clearly by large buoys as well as an on-site water safety team to assist any swimmers on the day if necessary.
It is important that all swimmers who are taking part are able to complete their chosen distance in full whilst training in a pool. All participants are advised to practise open water swimming in preparation for the day.
The Serpentine Lake is located in Hyde Park in the heart of central London and is easily accessible via public transport. Once inside Hyde Park, you’ll be able to follow a signposted route to the Start Area, which is on the north bank of the Serpentine Lake, between the Serpentine Gallery and the boathouses. We do not recommend driving to the event as finding parking in the Hyde Park area may prove difficult and cause delays to your journey.
