Open water swimming in Central London

In 2018, RunRite Events in  conjunction with Swim for Tri and Silverfit are holding their very popular Hyde Park Sunset Aquathlons based at the beautiful setting of the Serpentine Lido, adjacent to the café.  The series consists of five ‘Silverfit’ Aquathlons and offers a great chance to experience the Olympic triathlon venue whilst simultaneously enjoying the sun setting at the most iconic of Royal Parks.

The event is a 500m swim in the Serpentine followed by a 5km (2 lap) run in Hyde Park.


You are welcome to enter as an individual or as a relay team (one does the swim and the other person does the run). Please note you must be a competent swimmer and if you are entering as an intergenerational relay team please note for children the minimum age is 12 years old for the swim or run. Parents or guardians must sign a consent form agreeing to be poolside if the child is the nominated swimmer.
