About this Event

The Swimmer was the first UK Swimrun event. Just in a very unofficial and informal sense.

Described by The Guardian as "One of the most interesting, esoteric, and certainly friendliest sporting events around’ .

The Swimmer is a half marathon funrun through London's finest ponds, parks and pools. Leave the garmin at home - this is about the thrill of the chill in the water and the warmth of a group of like minded nutters.

There have been marriages and friendships for life made on The Swimmer and it has evolved into products and a new sport of Cross Country Swimming with www.abovebelow.sc.
