Important Update: 2020 Children with Cancer UK Swim Serpentine

The following message was sent to all 2020 Children with Cancer UK Swim Serpentine entrants on Thursday 20 August.

Dear Participant

We hope all is well with you.

Since we were last in touch on 24 July, we’ve been working hard on our plans to stage Children with Cancer UK Swim Serpentine in an appropriately socially distanced way on Saturday 26 September. However, the recent surges in Covid-19 since lockdown was eased and the uncertain current situation sadly mean it’s not possible to stage the event this year.

We know this will be very disappointing news for many of you, particularly those who were hoping to complete the London Classics by swimming two miles.

Children with Cancer UK Swim Serpentine will be back in 2021 and we’ll be in touch in October to ask you if you would like to rollover your entry to 2021 or if you would prefer a full refund of the entry fee you paid.

Thank you for your understanding and patience while we build the necessary systems to enable you to rollover your place or receive a refund and we’ll be in touch again in October.

Best wishes

The Children with Cancer UK Swim Serpentine team
