At the current moment, full details are scarce for this event but it has been described as 6 miles swum across several races through the day, in the Serpentine, London and it is limited to 20 slots - sounds fun.
So in 2017 I will be swimming the 14km of the Henley to Marlow stretch of the Thames, the 17km of Windermere and finishing with the day of races in the Serpentine. It is some time since I have swum shorter distances, fast - this could be a challenge....
Finally a little more detail on the A Smile for a Child (Registered Charity No. 1123357), the charity I am raising money for. The charity is a small grant giving charity, that helps disabled and disadvantaged children in the UK to participate and progress in sport. This is done via mainly small grants to help buy much needed equipment.
The charity was founded by Chris Read after he was made redundant and runs the charity on a part time basis, his drive and enthusiasm has driven the charity forward with the help of the Read family to start and later with help from many of their many friends.
