The Henley Mile is a straight line downstream River Thames swimming event held over the Henley Royal Regatta boomed course. This is event features a number of distance options for all ages and abilities including mile, half mile and 200m.
Open water (OW) competition has become more established & increasingly serious over the last decade. In order to develop the next crop of good OW competitors, WDSC believes it would be good to give swimmers more opportunities to experience OW racing earlier. This event is an ideal opportunity to let our swimmers learn skills, get used to the water and potentially be more ready for OW Nationals in future years.
As an exciting new event for WDSC we are planning a dedicated entry this year to form our first open water club championships. We are also hoping that we can also attract other local clubs to create an inter club competition too.
Details on our club entry and how to enter will follow shortly, but it will be great opportunity to experience open water racing as well as a fun family day.
