The Henley Classic Swim is a 2.1km (1.3 miles) upstream swim on the course of the Henley Royal Regatta. The event is a unique opportunity to swim along one of the most beautiful and famous stretches of open water in the UK.

The swim traditionally starts at dawn, with a ¼ mile torch-lit procession to the start prior to swimming. The event is held very early on the Sunday morning before the Wednesday start of the Henley Royal Regatta.

The Henley Classic Swim 2024 will be held on Sunday 30th June.
