Club La Santa, the number one sports and active holiday resort in the world, has become an official partner of Swim Serpentine, the UK’s leading open water swimming festival.
Through the partnership, Club La Santa will be offering activity holidays in its spectacular Lanzarote location including specialist swim training camps with open water swimming training, strokes and techniques.
Swim Serpentine is a one-day open water swimming festival staged in the heart of London and the third edition takes place on Saturday 22 September. Organised by London Marathon Events, the festival is held in and around the beautiful Serpentine in Hyde Park, the venue for the open water swimming competition at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Club La Santa will feature in the Swim Serpentine festival in Hyde Park this year, promoting its activity holidays and offering yoga sessions, face painting and festival giveaways.
Brendan Fox, Club La Santa’s UK Director of Sales, said: “We are really proud to be involved with such a magnificent event and we look forward to welcoming participants who enjoy swimming and beautiful winter sun to our resort in Lanzarote soon.”
Hugh Brasher, Event Director for Swim Serpentine, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Club La Santa to Swim Serpentine. Club La Santa offers huge expertise in coaching swimmers and it’s an ideal partnership for the UK’s leading open water swimming festival.”
Now in its third year, Swim Serpentine is established as a must-do event in the open water swimming calendar. In addition to the rare opportunity to swim in the Serpentine lake, the event offers heated changing rooms, dunk zone, pontoon start and finish, electronic timing, full water safety crew, hot tubs and exhibition area.
The two mile swims are now sold out but entries are still open for the half mile and one mile distances.
