The Henley Mile event has been confirmed for July 13 and is not to be missed by any open water swimming enthusiast, from beginner to competitive athlete.

The Henley Mile, from the creators of the Henley Classic, takes place over the beautiful and historic Henley Royal Regatta boomed course at the Temple Island Meadows. This year, the route has been reversed to take place in a straight line, downstream, creating the perfect conditions for those hoping to post a new personal best. If a mile sounds a little ambitious, a Henley Half is also on offer, again taking place over a straight course, downstream.

The H2Open Suits versus Skins challenge seeks to determine, once and for all, the performance impact of wetsuits compared to more traditional swim attire and the Temple Island Sprints are set to become a spectator favourite with swimmers competing over 100m to become the Usain Bolt of the water.

All this open water fun is not just for adults. Young swimmers aged 8 to 14 years are also being encouraged to get involved. The Henley Mile or the Henley Half can be competed as a family or youngsters can go solo in either the Henley Quarter or the Henley Splash (200m).
