Marlow Classic River Swim

This is the original Marlow River Swim which is now in its 9th year.

There are 2 distances to choose from this year that will cater for both beginners and experienced swimmers.

River Swim - Consisting of a single lap out and back swim in the River Thames for all the distances with clear markings on the buoys on when to turn. The River has a very calm and steady flow, which makes it the perfect event for anyone looking to take part in their first swim.


99% of the time, wetsuits have to be worn for this event due to the temperature of the water, generally in the UK and Thames Valley most of the water is between 14 degree Celsius & 22 degrees Celsius.

The temperature of the water is always taken at least one hour before an event to determine if wetsuits must be worn.


There will prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd Overall male and female.

All the events will be supported by our race and event partners.

Bespoke Medals for ALL finishers.
