Map and Directions

The Jubilee River Swim was dreamt up in a pub in 2012, and has become of the countries favourite endurance swim events. The man made flood relief channel between Boulters Lock nr Maidenhead and Pococks Lane in Eton is free from craft and it's distance is 10km! There are three weirs along the rivers length that break up the course nicely for our relay swimmers. You'll find our feed stations here.

With three short stretches on dry land, you only need to swim 9.5km!

Swim HQ & Car Parking

Jubilee Swim HQ is likely to be at the Thames Valley Athletics Centre near Eton. Instructions for TVAC are here. This may change in the event wet weather in the immediate build up to swim day. We'll keep you informed of any important details.

At swim HQ you can find the registration on swim day, toilets, showers and refreshments

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 10-14 days before the swim.

If you would like to start in the same swim group as friends, family, people you're travelling with etc, we will do our best to accomodate you. You will need to get your request in before March 31st. Dealing with 100's of requests at the 11th hour is hassle we'd rather avoid. Get organised!

Water Temperature & Wetsuits

For the six years of the Jubilee River Swim, water temperature has varied between 14.4 & 16.7 degrees. The swim isn’t wetsuit compulsory, so you’ll have the option of being in our skins category within the entry form.
