Thames Valley Swim & SUP Festival
Come and join us for the first ever Thames Valley Swim & SUP Festival taking place at Caversham Lakes on Saturday 11th September.
This will be an action-packed day for all, featuring multiple open water swimming & stand up paddle boarding events for all ages and abilities. Together with the adult events there is a large focus on delivering junior events for ages 8 – 15 years, which are a great way to get the whole family into taking part in sport, exercise and spending time outdoors.
From 100m junior swims to 10km endurance swim & SUP events including relays, there is an opportunity for everyone from schools, colleges, clubs, companies and individuals to take part and be a part of this exciting new Swim & SUP festival.
Each event will have a finish clock for participants to track their overall time as they finish the course, however there will be no published results or individual times given to participants.
All start times are TBC. All participants will receive a ‘final email’ with event timings, course maps and instructions prior to the event.
