River Arun 3.8km Swim @ RNLI Littlehampton/Ford Marina

River Arun 3.8km Swim @ RNLI Littlehampton/Ford Marina | England | United Kingdom


2020 will be the 12th year the River Arun Swim has taken place and another unique chance to swim the river over the classic Ironman distance of 3.8km from Ford to Littlehampton. Fast times are guaranteed, just ask 2018 competitors, so many PB’s with 362 swimmers under the hour! WETSUITS ARE COMPULSORY.

The River Arun has the second fastest tidal river in the UK and stretches as far north as Horsham and down to the sea at Littlehampton in West Sussex. Swimmers are taken by coach to the start point at Ford Marina and then make their way on mass to finish at the RNLI in Littlehampton.  Safety is our uppermost priority and we’ll have our usual REP crew including the Harbour Master’s launch, pilot boat, safety RIBS, kayaks and Sussex Search & Rescue spotters on the river bank.

The start will be just after high tide (at Ford) during the 30 minute period of slack water as the tide starts to ebb away back to the sea.  Registration will take place at the RNLI Station in Surrey Street, Littlehampton, BN17 3BL which is also the location for the finish on the quay by the Look & Sea Centre and Cafe. Race packs and numbering take place here. For guaranteed parking head for Coastguard Road (BN17 5LH), which is close to Harbour Park Amusements and only a short walk to the RNLI.
