The Jubilee River Swim was dreamt up in a pub in 2011, and has since become one of the countries favourite swims. The man made flood relief channel between Boulters Lock nr Maidenhead and Pococks Lane in Eton is free from craft and is a convenient length at 10km! There are three weirs along the rivers length that break up the swim nicely, and you’ll find our feed stations here. We will also have a relay option; teams of 2, 3 or 4 swimmers welcome.
Following feedback from the 2020 and 2021 events we are planning for registration and event parking to be at Thames Valley Athletics Centre, SL4 6HN. From here you will then be bused to the Swim Start (15-20 minutes away) at Boulters Lock in Taplow – then it’s up to you to swim the 10km back to your car! Swimmers will be started in waves based on the predicted swim time you submit at point of entry – please ensure these are as accurate as they can be possibly be. If you would like to be in the same starting wave as friends, we will do our best to accommodate this for you dependent on your predicted swim times. In order to allow the organising team to confirm event plans in good time, please do so by 20th May 2022 at the latest. 

  • Competitors to provide their own food/drink clearly labelled for each feed station which we will transport to the relevant feed stations.
  • Competitors to use their own bags for their belongings they require at the finish line.
  • The RELAY option – teams of 2, 3 or 4 swimmers welcome.
  • Hand sanitiser to be available at registration, feed stations and the finish line
