Tom Kean is the co-founder, along with Jeremy Laming, of the Henley Swim that includes the Henley Classic in June, the Henley Mile in July, the Bridge to Bridge in August, and the Queenford Relays in September. These races are organized by Kean, Laming and Georgina Tomkins.
Kean says, “This will be a brand new race format which we has been designed around swimming and triathlon club members. It will provide the perfect environment to practice the fiendishly difficult open-water skill of drafting in the team pursuit event, and give clubs the chance to pit themselves against other clubs in the relays. It should be a fascinating morning of swimming, which should be just as compelling from the bank!”
H2Open Magazine editor Simon Griffiths says about the event, “Henley Swim have devised yet another format that we think will become hugely popular in years to come. They stand out as an event organiser who are determined bring something different and exciting to swimmers”.
2XU UK Marketing Director Mike Martin says about the event, “Henley Swim have devised yet another fantastic race. We are very pleased to be the wetsuit partner to the Henley Swim series and are enjoy working with such a motivated and enthusiastic race organiser who is going the extra mile to come up with a race which is just a little bit different.”
