About the race

10km Swim on Berkshires Secret River

Returning for seventh year, the Jubilee River Swim continues to be the must-do long distance event in the South East. A simply epic day out along a stunning stretch of water; an utterly unique opportunity on an unused river. You can take on the 10km challenge as an individual or as part of a relay team of 2, 3 or 4 people. The river is perfectly segmented by three weirs along the route, which make the ideal spots for relay hand-overs and our famous feed stations.

Excellent event

Really enjoyed this event. Excellent pre-race communications, likewise the on-the-day organisation. The safety support was first rate and great support from the marshals. Will be on my list to return next year.

Best swim event of the year

I love doing this event. It's my fifth year and one for your race diary if you like a challenge which is well supported, superbly organised, safe and not to mention, always sunny!!  

Do have a look at the race photos from 2018 if you want to get a feel for the event. But honestly, just sign up. And soon, as this event will sell out. 

See you next year!

Great Swim!

There's a reason that this event always sells out super fast! Brilliant organisation, good marshalls (land and water), great water quality and a really beautiful course! Top notch event!

One of the friendliest events around

O.K. so a 10k swim is not for everyone but if your going to try one, I would recommend this event but be quick, it sells out every year.

This year saw a change in logistics which wasn't ideal. Parking at the race course was easy with plenty of space but on finishing this year, getting back to your car was a bus ride away. Not a major issue but preferred the logistic of the previous year.

The race briefing is always quick and concise delivered with humor and not long after you are in the river. The race is always made up of 4 waves, with the last wave being the faster swimmers. As they set off every 30 mins, there is not too much congestion as the race progresses. The race is also broken out into 4 sections where you need to exit the river (to avoid the weirs) so you can either attempt it solo or as part of a team, picking an choosing how many sections you want to do. Even though this is a river, don’t expect too much in terms of a helpful current.

If your tempted but think 10k is too long, take part as a team, if you do i’m sure you’ll be back for the whole thing.

Best OW event. Fullstop.

Second year of doing the Jubilee Relays and believe it or not, it gets better and better. Wave 4 was ambitious for me, but my relay partner got me out of the woods. Fantastic event, and superb marshalls. Can't recoomend this event enough for any open water swimming fanatics.
