The stunning venue for the 2012 Olympics is transformed into a festival of open water swimming!
Open water swimming in a venue like Dorney Lake is an amazing challenge whether you are an elite or a beginner with the event featuring four distances, from 750m up to the iconic 10k ‘swimmers marathon’. Dorney Lake, with its clear water, accurate marker points and clear lines of sight provides a great place to take on your first open water swim or go for a great time in one of the longer disciplines.
As with every event in the series, the Eton Swim provides unparalleled levels of water safety with the experienced and knowledgeable Human Race Water Safety Crew looking after you at every stroke. You can choose from 750 metres, 1500 metres, 3 kilometres, 5 kilometers half marathon or the challenge of the full 10 kilometre swimmers marathon.
· Gloves and booties can be used
· The Swims will not be cancelled if the temperature falls below 11 degrees
· Wetsuits are optional
All swimmers will receive an event swim cap and an exclusive Swim Series medal – so you’ll be able to collect the full set through the series! Event-specific t-shirts are also available for purchase via the event entry page and there will be lots of goodies on the day from our event partners.
The Eton Swim is great for spectators who can watch the action from various vantage points around the course. The bridge by the start is a great place to see the swimmers begin their challenge, while a tarmac path that runs the length of the course means you can follow the action all the way, cheering as you go of course! After its success last year, we will be bringing back the two on-course nutrition stations for the 10k swimmers, along with the cake-filled Recovery Tent for finishers!
The venue also boasts ample, free onsite parking and some great facilities for both pre and post event relaxation and recovery. Shower facilities, changing rooms and lockers are all available within the boat house and further facilities will be available in the marquees in the event village – including our retail partners in case you forget your goggles, or worse, your swim suit!
