In 2022 The Rivers Trust is partnered with the Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival as an Official Charity Partner. Together, we're asking swimmers to race to revive rivers and communities.


The Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival is an outdoor swim event like no other. A weekend celebrating open water swimming, set in the most stunning location on the banks of the Thames just outside Henley. This outdoor swim event has a variety of swimming challenges covering different distances, there are exhibitors, retailers and experts all together in one place – giving you access to everything you need to know about this adventurous sport.


With acres of space, delicious food and drink, a chance to meet the Outdoor Swimmer Magazine team, music, entertainment and other activities, all hosted by BBC Sport Journalist Ben Croucher, this really is the perfect event for every swimming enthusiast.


Free charity places


There are two ways to raise money for the charity – sign up for a free charity place, or register for a place in the usual way, and us know you are fundraising.
