Race Format for London City Swim Announced

The organisers of London City Swim, sponsored by Intertrust, have announced the race format for the London City Swim, which takes place on Friday 22nd September 2017 in the Royal Victoria Docks.

500 swimmers, a mixture of teams and individuals, will swim a 500m lap of the course, setting off in waves. Every swimmer will have a timing chip, and their 500m time will be recorded.

For most, it will then be time to get warm and dry and to start the party, but for the fastest 14 men and 14 women there will be 200m Super Sprint semi-finals and final to see who will be crowned the individual champions of the London City Swim. There will also be a 200m sprint with exciting, invited guests.

So whether you are in it simply to swim the course at your own pace, or if you think you've got what it takes to make the finals, sign up now at www.londoncityswim.com and help us reach our target of raising £100,000 for MND research and Project MinE. In either case, you will get to enjoy the after party!
