Henley On Thames River Swim
The River Thames Open Water Swim Series offers the Henley On Thames River Swim of 750m, 1.5 km and 3 km distances on 18 August 2012 at Shiplake College.
2.5 miles outside of Henley On Thames, Shiplake College is set in 45 acres of Oxfordshire countryside, directly looking over the river Thames.
The field is limited to 500 individuals.
An open water swim in a very special stretch of the River Thames, just 2.5 km up stream from Henley On Thames Town Centre. The River will hardly be flowing and is nearly static at this point in the river and perfect for all types of swimmers. Shiplake College offers great facilities for all spectators, where spectators can watch from the shore. Spectators can watch the bike course from the side of the road on the perimeter of college grounds, plus take a scenic walk around the college grounds.
