Swim Serpentine entrants could win trip-of-a-lifetime to South Africa

An unforgettable trip to South Africa lies in wait for two charity swimmers taking part in the first ever Swim Serpentine.

We have teamed up with Virgin Money Giving to offer two lucky entrants the chance to take part in the world’s largest open water swim, the aQuelle Midmar Mile in Pietermaritzburg.

The amazing prize package, which includes flights, accommodation and entry into the famous swim, will be won by the man and woman who raise the most money on their Virgin Money Giving fundraising page having completed Swim Serpentine.

Hugh Brasher, Event Director of Swim Serpentine, said: “This is an amazing competition and hopefully will be extra incentive to those thousands of swimmers who are taking part in Swim Serpentine to raise money for charity.”

Swim Serpentine takes place in London’s Hyde Park on 24-25 September.

The one-mile mass-participation swim takes on Saturday 24 September. The deadline for entries for this event is 17:00 on Thursday 25 August.

The following day, on Sunday 25 September, the British Open Water Swimming Championships take place.
