Campervans can be parked at the event site and can be pre-booked at a cost of £35 per campervan. On the day campervan charge will be £40.

Prizes will be awarded for junior events only. Presentations for the junior half mile (age groups 9-13 & 14-17) and the Henley Splash (age groups 8-10 & 11-12) will be made shortly after the events. The results for the junior mile and suits vs skins will not be available until after wave 6 is complete, and awards will therefore be sent out by post. All swim times will be available at the event and also sent to you by text. Full results will be available online after all waves are complete.
Parents / Guardians entering on behalf of children (any entry under the age of 17yrs old on race day) must complete the parent waiver part of the form below.
NOTE: If your chosen wave is full you will be automatically placed into the next available wave.
