Map and Directions

2017 entries are now open and bound to sell out early, so make sure you don't miss out.

The Jubilee River is a man made flood relief channel cutting the corner off the River Thames between Boulters Lock nr Maidenhead and Pococks Lane in Eton, and the distance in between is 10km! Along the length of the Jubilee River there are three weirs that swimmers must avoid, so in getting out to go around the weirs you'll only need to swim 9.5k :-) The weirs make the perfect place for our fabulous feed stations along the way and break up the course nicely into four segments, making up our relay event.

The 2017 Jubilee River Swim format will follow that of previous years no doubt - most questions you may have are more than likely answered within the 2016 Swim Instructions. Check them out HERE.

Swim HQ & Car Parking

Jubilee Swim HQ is at the Thames Valley Athletics Centre near Eton. Instructions for TVAC are here.

At swim HQ you can find the registration on swim day, toilets, showers and refreshments. The pre-swim transport leaves from the main TVAC car park.

Your swim car parking is in the field adjacent to the registration area at TVAC, and we have a wet weather car parking as back up, at Upton Court Road near Slough.

Swim Times & Groups

We are likely to have four swim groups, starting at 9.30am, 10am, 10.30am & 10.45am respectively. The first group will be for the swimmers with slower predicted times, with the fastest swimmers in group 4. Swim groups and your start times will be confirmed 7-10 days before the swim. 

Water Temperature & Wetsuits

For the four years of the Jubilee River Swim, water temperature has been between 14.4 & 16.7 degrees. The swim isn’t wetsuit compulsory, whilst the majority will use a wetsuit we appreciate skins swimmers will want to go without; you’ll be asked about this whilst entering.
