OPEN WATER SWIM – Rennie Grove

Join us for Rennie Grove’s first-ever open water swimming challenge!

The event will be taking place at Merchant Taylors’ Lake, Hertfordshire on Saturday 15 May 2021. The beautiful freshwater lake is an ideal venue for seasoned swimmers or those that have always wanted to give it a go.

The event offers 3 different challenges: an untimed 400 metre family swim perfectly for adults and children; a 400 metre timed swim and a 1,500 metre timed swim for those who really want to challenge themselves.

Very few charities host their own open water swim events, with most opting to take charity places in larger events such as Swim Serpentine and the Great North Swim. This is a unique opportunity to do something different and exciting on your doorstep.
