Swim Serpentine

Charity places up for grabs at Swim Serpentine

General entries have sold out for this popular event but don’t worry – you can still secure a charity spot if you’d like to take part in Swim Serpentine, which takes place 14 September 2024

Swim Serpentine has announced that general entry places for the 2024 event have sold out, so charity places now the only way for people to take part in the popular open water swimming festival in Hyde Park, London.

All places in the One Mile and Half Mile distances have been filled, after the Super Six and Two Mile swims sold out in less than a day.

For those who missed out, there’s still a chance to get involved in this year’s event. Charity places for all four distances (Half Mile, One Mile, Two Miles and Super Six) are available now, offering the opportunity to be a part of the day and use the challenge to raise money for an important cause.

Ben Craddock, Event Lead for Swim Serpentine, said: “We’re delighted to have sold out entries for Swim Serpentine again this year. It highlights both the increasing popularity of outdoor swimming and what an amazing and in-demand event Swim Serpentine has become. If you missed out, there’s still a chance to be involved by signing up on a charity place and using your swim to support an incredible cause.”

Swim Serpentine returns to Hyde Park on Saturday 14 September and offers swimmers the chance to take on one of four distances in the historic Serpentine Lake, ranging from half-mile and one-mile waves to the Super Six six-mile challenge, with many taking on the two-mile distance as part of the London Classics.
