A CALL has gone out for people to take part in the second Henley Club to Pub Swim on Saturday, July 25.
Participants have to swim 1.5km upstream from Henley Rowing Club to Marsh Lock and then down to the Angel on the Bridge.
They start on the 7pm chime of the bells at St Mary’s Church with the aim of finishing it before the bells ring for 8pm.
Almost 170 swimmers took part in last year’s inaugural event.
Brakspear is once again providing all swimmers with a bottle of commemorative Two Bells beer and putting on a barbecue and party at the Angel on the Bridge for all who finish the course and their supporters.
Finishers also receive a medal which doubles as a bottle opener.
Any Brakspear licensee taking the plunge will have their entry fee paid by the company.
Two Bells is a 3.7% ABV golden ale specially brewed to mark the event and this will also be sold in Henley pubs at the time of the swim.
Brakspear chief executive Tom Davies said: “We hope that more swimmers will take part in the race this year, including some of our licensees and teams from our pubs, and we look forward to celebrating with them all.”
The event is one of a number of open water events organised by Jeremy Laming, co–founder of the Henley Swim. To enter, visit www.brakspear.co.uk/swim or visit www.henleyswim.com
