Relay Swims

Prior to 1964, there were only two relay teams that successfully crossed the English Channel: the Rotherham Neptunus Swim Club that went from England to France in 11 hours 20 minutes in 1950 and the Folkestone Swim Club that went from France to England in 14 hours 57 minutes in 1954. Then, beginning in 1964, a slew of relay teams started to join the English Channel swimming fraternity.

The 3rd Jubilee River Swim
sponsored by blueseventy

Sunday 8th June, 2014, appox 9.30am-10.30am starts



Back for a third time, this 10km long distance swim takes in the whole length of the Jubilee River, starting near Maidenhead and finishes adjacent to the Thames Valley Athletics Centre in Eton. You can cover the 10km as an individual, or as part of a relay team of 4. The 3 weirs along the river make for the perfect relay change over points and for our famous feed stations. SWIM MAP

Race HQ and Parking will be near the Thames Valley Athletics Centre in Eton. At TVAC, there'll be refreshments, toilets and showers available. Directions for TVAC can be found HERE From there we'll bus you to your start area.NB Spectators and relay swimmers will need to be self sufficient in following the towpath all the way to the finish.

The Jubilee River Swim will not be wetsuit compulsory, however if you do intend to swim without a wetsuit we'd request you contact us via with a brief overview of your swim experience.

The water temperature is likely to be in the region of 15-16 degrees at this time of year, with weather conditions obviously influencing.

As standard, we'll be setting you all off in groups of similar abilities to swim your way to the finish as you choose to - race, take it easy, it's upto you. We'll also be offering a 'social start' for those who wish to take their time a little more! We recommend this group for this who anticipate taking more than 4 hours - you'll re-group at each weir and swim more as a bunch. You should enter as normal and we'll ask for your decision on this two weeks before the swim.

With more people taking part in river swim events, it's worthwhile reading a recent report on the potential dangers of river swimming HERE We work closely with the Environment Agency and Public Health departments, getting up to date information on water safety. Swimming in the Jubilee River is as safe as swimming in any river nationwide. We will, of course, be taking action to ensure you're swim is as safe as it can be.

There will be a 5hr cut off for the swim.

Whilst registering we'll ask you to give an estimated swim time - please base this upon non tidal or flow assisted conditions.

We started Swim With A Mission, Inc. because we needed to do something! We are frustrated and concerned that our veterans are being treated so poorly. Our veterans and their families have given so much and for some, made the ultimate sacrifice. Our veterans deserve more. We live in the land of the free and the home of the brave because of the brave. We hope that you will join us on this mission to help and honor our Veterans.

The 'English Channel In Manchester' Relay Swim

Salford Quays | 23/08/13


Here was a challenge to whet the appetite of any long distance swimmers that get excited by urban night swimming in big, bad weather!!

A small but perfectly formed event of five relay teams recruited (or press ganged!) six swimmers who each swam 2km and repeat it three times for good measure. This equates to 22miles, the length of the English Channel. Easy peasy! The beauty of swimming the English Channel in Manchester instead of the real thing (whic we luv) is the saving of over £3,000, no jellyfish, no errant cross channel ferries or messy sewage discharges from Panamanian oil tankers!

The evening started well with all teams setting a cracking pace. Spirits remained high until dampened somewhat by torrential downpours that meant it was dryer swimming than relaxing. Sheltered under the Uswim gazebos or in the local marketing suite our intrepid teams gritted their teeth and ploughed on regardless escorted by their heroic support kayaks.

Just over 9hours later local heroes Trafford Masters broke the water speed record in an incredible time of 9:17 dragging along the old warrior Dave Randall (!) Our two lovable Liverpudlian teams came in second and third separated by a mere 4minutes with the Floaters floating home in a very respectable 13hours, forty mins. Bravo J

Commiserations to Las Barracudas who bit off more than they could chew on the night but which goes to show ³it ain¹t half tough in the Channel!²
