When is Swim Serpentine? September 2022

Half-Mile Swim:  Features half a lap of the world-famous lake in London’s Hyde Park and is a great option if you’re looking for an achievable but memorable swim at this iconic event.

One-Mile Swim:  This is the most popular of all the swim distances at Swim Serpentine with swimmers taking anything from 20 minutes through to one hour to complete it.

Two-Mile Swim:  For those who would like to test themselves with two full (1.6km) laps of the Serpentine. Aimed at more experienced swimmers who have already completed a mile open water swim previously.

Super-Six Swim:  If you love the camaraderie of outdoor swimming events but want to go that little bit further (OK, quite a lot further), this is the distance for you!

Fundraising target: £200

Your Swim Serpentine fundraising will transform the lives of young Londoners like Blaise

When Blaise, 24, had to leave his family home, he had nowhere to go and was forced onto the streets. During the pandemic he was referred to Single Homeless Project and he's started to turn his life around. We helped him find accommodation, get qualifications and rebuild his relationship with his family. Today he is living independently and working his dream job in a boxing gym.
