About London City Swim

London City Swim is a charity swim, taking place in London Docklands on Friday 21st September 2018 from 4pm. The aim of the swim is to bring together hundreds of swimmers who wish to make a difference by swimming to raise funds and awareness for motor neurone disease (MND).

In 2012 the first Amsterdam City Swim took place, and in 2015 the New Amsterdam City Swim in the Hudson, New York. 2018 will see hundreds swimming a 500m lap in Royal Victoria Dock, followed by, for some, 200m Super Sprints. All money raised will go to MND Association and Stephen Hawking Foundation. This year, all proceeds will be put towards funding Project Ambrosia, an ambitious collaboration involving three leading research centres. This project will help us understand motor neurone disease better than ever before.

We are inviting people to put together teams of 4, to compete in this event. We also welcome individual swimmers. Every team member and individual will swim a 500m lap of the Royal Victoria Docks. The team of 4 with the fastest combined time will become team champions. We will then invite the fastest 10 men and 10 women to be part of the Super Sprint Final.

Corporate team entry: If you would like to pay for your team entry via invoice, please email us at: for further instructions.

For those that do not wish to swim, you can still spectate and join the after party by purchasing a spectator ticket. These are £25 in advance, or £30 on the day. Please see the merchandise section below.
