Saturday 24 July 2010 between Southend and Thorpe Bay in Essex.
There are two separate races so that both novice and more experienced Open Water swimmers can enjoy the challenge of the 3k race. It is open to both ASA members and non-ASA members.
The event is also looking to raise much needed funds for Haven Hospices, a charity which provides respite care and end of life support for adults and children with serious illnesses.
