Event Information


The London City Swim will take place on Friday 22nd September at the Royal Victoria Docks, London E16.

From 4pm swimmers will start in waves, and complete a 500m lap, starting and finishing at the same place. All swimmers will be timed, and the team of 4 with the fastest combined time will become the Team Champions.

The fastest 4 men and 4 women from each wave will then be invited to take part in the Super Sprint Finals. This will take place over the 200m course. There will be two semi-final heats for men, and two for women, and the fastest 3 swimmers from each semi-finals will go through to the finals, to find the overall individual champions.

The final race of the evening will be an All Stars 200m sprint, with invited guests.

The evening will continue with food, drink and entertainment.


Wetsuits are not compulsory, however we strongly recommend that you wear one, particularly if you are not acclimatised to swimming in cold water.

If is now too late to pre-book wetsuit hire. Jason Blood will be at the London CIty Swim with a selection of wetsuits for hire, but we cannot guarantee that every size will be available.
