Love Open Water is bringing back the – RD5 (Royal Docks 5km Swim) on Saturday, 13 July.

You’ll be challenged to swim 5 laps of the 1km course in one of 3 waves: Fast, Medium, or Relaxed. All waves are mass start.

This is the ideal opportunity to train for this September’s Dock2Dock event and familiarise yourself with the same stunning body of water. Gain an edge and boost your performance by diving into this thrilling experience.

RD5 isn’t just for competitive racers! If you prefer a more relaxed and enjoyable swim, it’s the perfect way to be part of a local event that’s brimming with fun and friendliness. Set your own pace and revel in the joy of swimming with a supportive community.

Worried about the time constraints? Fear not! Our swim cut-off time is an incredibly generous 4.5 hours, ensuring that you can complete the challenge comfortably and at your own pace.

Except for backstroke, you can choose any technique that suits you—whether it’s the sleek front crawl, the graceful breaststroke, the dynamic butterfly, the classic side stroke, or even the playful doggy-paddle!

Feel free to swim with the aid of a wetsuit or in ‘skins’ (swimsuit). The choice is yours!
