2nd Annual Bridge to Bridge Teams Up For Success

2nd Annual Bridge to Bridge Teams Up For Success

In the afterglow of the Olympic Games, the 2nd annual Bridge To Bridge 14k marathon swim got underway. From Henley to Marlow, 176 swimmers including four-time Ironman world champion Chrissie Wellington took part and traversed 3 locks and 4 food stops along the course.

100% of the starters finished as the participants swam in pods for support and guidance. Greg Whyte came in first in 2 hours 50 minutes with Wellington right behind. She commented, “It was 14km of heaven…it was such a unique, special and incredibly uplifting experience. The relaxed, sportive nature of the swim ensures that the focus is on teamwork, friendship, fun and camaraderie rather than serious competition.”
