Social swim with Alpkit Kingston in the River Thames


Guided social swim, followed by tea and snacks at the store 

Join us Alpkit Kingston on Saturday 26th November for a guided social swim in the River Thames. Led by Jude Palmer and Paul Mackenzie.

We will meet in the Kingston store at 10am and head down to the river at Canbury Gardens which is about a 10 min walk.

As it is November, and some of you may be new to it, we're planning for this to be more of a dip than a swim. This swim will be guided by Jude and Paul, both experienced swimmers, Open Water Swim Coaches and lifeguards. They will be on hand to offer top tips for winter swimming, why it is so good for our body and soul and will set the bar for how quickly getting dressed post swim can really be! The emphasis is very much fun and eating the homemade cake afterwards.

Even if it is a sunny day, please dress as if you are expecting a blizzard. Plenty of loose fitting clothes, a woolly hat, gloves and something to swim in. Talking of which, swim skins (in your swimming trunks or costume) or suits (in a wetsuit), it is entirely up to you.

We'll also have free coffee/tea and snacks available back at the store post-swim too where Jude and Paul will be about to chat about all things swimming and answer any questions you may not have had chance to ask down at the river.

Please note: this event is weather dependant. If we have had previous nights of heavy rain and the water levels are unsafe this will be postponed
