The inaugural British Gas Great London Swim took place in summer 2009 and was a huge success with 1000 swimmers taking the plunge. The one-mile public swimming event took place in the heart of the Capital and attracted swimmers of all shapes and sizes from a 36 year old mother or three with a fear of deep water to an 86 year old Grandad . In addition to the masses, many of the world’s top swimmers and Olympic heroes battled it out to take the honours in the elite races.
The event is part of the British Gas Great Swim series – four one-mile outdoor swims staged in some of the most stunning locations in the UK.
Great Swim is open to swimmers of all abilities aged 16 years and over. For more information and to enter online go to www.greatswim.org.
