Royal Windsor Open Water River Swim
The first ever Royal Windsor Open Water Swim took place in September last year and it was such a hit that the swim will take place in the main part of the season in June this year. This beautiful historic town, famous for Windsor Castle and many other sporting events is the perfect setting for this open water swim. The swim races will take place on 5th June 2011 and the tickets to enter cost £25. There are three different distances you can take part in, the 950m, 1.9km and 3.8km. The closing date for entries is on the day, but we would advise early booking to avoid disappointment. Zoggs are also offering a chance to win tickets to the event on their Facebook page, check out how you could win here. Located on the Banks of the River Thames, the Royal River Swim is set to be a premier open water swimming event of the sporting calendar. The event winds itself upstream with the slight drag from the current, just past the motorway underpass. A short distance away they will then hit the large swim buoy where competitors swim back towards the start/finish area with the current. Event organisers would like to note that this event is for competent swimmers who have swum in open water before the event. � For further details and to book your ticket, visit F3 Events.
