Just finished your Aspire Channel Swim? Never tried open water swimming? Then this is the perfect challenge for you!

In partnership with SwimQuest, we are offering beginners a great way to start open water swimming. Our River Arun swim gives you the chance to soak up the English countryside in rural Sussex with a complimentary breakfast, beautiful summer swim down the river and then an optional celebratory post-swim lunch at a local pub (at own expense).

You don’t need to be a strong swimmer to take part in this event. The swim is just over 4 miles long and tidally-assisted, which sounds daunting if you’re used to a pool, but means that the distance will feel easier than it would in a lake or in the sea. You will be able to see the bank at all times, there will be ‘get out’ points along the river, plus fully supported boats to assist you should you need them. If you are unsure about your ability then get in touch with John Coningham-Rolls from SwimQuest and he can tell you more about what the swim involves.

Date: Sunday 6th August

What you will receive:

  • A free open water taster session in June (venue TBC)
  • Information evening at Aspire HQ (North London)
  • Swim guides
  • Boat safety cover
  • SwimQuest swim cap
  • SwimQuest dry bag
  • Medal
  • Complimentary light pre-swim breakfast (e.g. bananas, croissants) tea and coffee

Deposit: £30
Minimum £245 (excluding deposit)
