The Henley Mile


THE HENLEY MILE is a point-to-point downstream River Thames swimming event, held over the Henley Royal Regatta boomed course. This family event, which is held throughout the day, features a number of distance options for all ages and abilities including mile, half mile and 200m. As well as races, the event offers a non-competitive sporting category which is ideal for anyone looking to complete the course in their own time, without the pressure of being part of a race. All entrants receive a completion time and finisher medal.

Entry to any of the swimming events also includes free entry to the Outdoor Swimmer Show for participants and their family/supporters.
