Welcome to the City of London 1.5km (1500m) Swim Series
Set in the Victoria Dock with the stunning and iconic backdrop of Canary Wharf, our City of London Swim Series allows you to trial your technique and speeds in the same body of water used for the world’s most popular triathlon in the world.
This event is aimed at open water swimmers and participants of Standard Distance Triathlons looking to gain experience in the open water swimming element of triathlon.
This is a fantastic opportunity to practice swimming in Victoria Dock in a race environment which is the main dock and one of London’s 3 Royal Docks. It is great knowing the swim environment of any triathlon before you actually do it and also can give you a clear indication of your 1.5km swim times if you previously have not completed this distance.
