It's not every day you get the opportunity to do something you're not allowed to do. On any other day the 'No swimming' signs around the Serpentine let you know you can't dive in...and if you've ever wanted to do exactly that on a hot summer's day, then this is your opportunity!

We have a single charity place for the 1 mile swim, a classic distance in the world of open water swimming events.

It takes place on the same course as the London 2012 Marathon Swimming Olympic event, with one full lap around the Serpentine making up the one-mile swim. This is the most popular of all the swim distances for Swim Serpentine with swimmers taking anything from 20 minutes through to one hour to complete the swim.
