Swim along this beautiful stretch of the River Thames through the organic pastures of Oxford University land. This swim is aimed at all levels of swimmers. Either you’re looking for your first taste of river swimming or you’re training for an Iron Man and would like to swim the full distance before your main event. The swim starts at Eynsham Lock and finishes 4km downstream at Kings Lock. And because it’s with the flow of the river it makes progress a little easier.
Sign up and raise money for Helen & Douglas House!
Date: Sunday 21st June
Location: Start at Eynsham, Oxfordshire

Why should you take on a swimming challenge for Helen & Douglas House?
Your participation in our fundraising events is going to make a real difference to us – we care for terminally ill babies, children, young people, and their families through exceptional hospice care.
We rely on the generosity of the public to keep our doors open, with voluntary donations making up the majority of the £3.6 million every year we need to find to run the hospice service.
