Swim Serpentine September 2018 Open Water

 Swim Serpentine this year was not blessed with good weather and the rain did set in around mid-day.  This did not deter the Corby family who were set to complete the 2 mile swim (Ella, Richard and Anna)   Richard was set on receiving a coveted London 'Classic' Medal for completing the London Marathon (4 times) London Prudential 100 mile Bike Ride and the 2 mile Swim Serpentine.   First home was Ella who was 2nd Lady overall (1st British Lady swimmer) and won the wave in 44.51 minutes.   Anna was next home and came 30th in her age group (1.08)and Richard achieved a great result of 51st in age group in 1.13.29   Also swimming the same wave was David Ashton who used to swim and coach at SCSC who came 6th in the age group 2 mile swim and also received a Classic Medal for completing all three events.  We also understand Mary Cooper completed the 1 Mile Swim during the day.   Fantastic Swimming - Well done everyone!
