About the Super Six swim

If you love the camaraderie of outdoor swimming events but want to test yourself over a longer distance, this is the event for you! The Super Six challenge is limited to 100 swimmers each year, making it a really special event.

This event offers experienced open water swimmers the chance to swim six miles in this iconic London lake in Hyde Park.

Super Six participants will need to complete their six miles in one continuous swim – meaning they won't be able to mix waves or exit the water between them, as was the case in previous years (2019 and earlier).

This doesn’t mean you won’t be able to take any breaks should you need to. A section at the end of the pontoon will be dedicated to Super Sixers, where you’ll be able to pause in the water. This area will have a check-in point with crew at the ready to help you record your laps and provide drinks and some snacks should you want them.

At the end of your sixth lap, participants in the Super Six will finish as normal.

Swimmer safety at Swim Serpentine

Your safety is our number-one priority at Swim Serpentine, so our water safety team will be standing by to assist on the day. The Swim Serpentine course will be clearly marked by large buoys, so you’ll find it easy to make your way around your chosen swim distance.

It’s a good idea to complete your chosen distance in full in a pool before the event, and also to practise swimming in open water beforehand, so you have the best possible experience at Swim Serpentine.
