Dee Mile

Date & Location

Chester, Cheshire

Organiser’s Description

This race has an almost continuous history going back to 1922, when it was first swum. It's a tidal swim and is actually a mile and a quarter, starting at the Red House pub and going downstream around the Crook of the Dee, to finish at the suspension bridge. Being all downstream, course times vary considerably depending on the seasonal flow. Options for shorter race and a race for juniors too, so chance for all to get involved.
