Organiser's Description

Starting at the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre, this 1 mile race takes place in Millwall Outer Dock, a filming location for James Bond's "The world is not enough."

Waves at 06:30am, 07:00am and 07:30am. Feeling fit? Why not swim in all 3 waves! £100.00 cash prize for the fastest time of the morning.

Changing rooms and hot showers included. We have some wetsuits available to borrow too. Times recorded by our team (no timing chip needed). With a maximum of 50 swimmers per heat, this is a perfect event for first timers and experienced athletes.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a compulsory wetsuit swim. This is an adult event for over 18's only. In 2018 the winner was a female, in 2019 a male, we look forward to seeing who wins in 2020.

Race hard, get changed and head to work refreshed!

Friendly relaxed event

This was my first open water swim. Would recommend for other new starters.

Brilliant race - will get incredibly popular

The water in Millwall Docks was surprisingly fresh and clear. The 1 Mile race course was easily navigated and the whole event extremely well organised. Coming back next year. I want to be sub 30.
