Just completed your Lock to Lock swim…
WELL I will give you 12/10. Brilliant, brilliant swim… The swim hats are the best of the year and as for the mugs… stroke of genius, best idea EVER… medals are crap! Well done you.
Every thing ran like clockwork, just a really brilliant day. EVERYBODY who helped was so friendly and great…
Book me in for next year
Thank you for the fantastic Lock to Lock swim. I hope you feel massively proud of yourselves because you created not just a brilliantly-organised event but a fabulous atmosphere for it all. The follow-up photos have been a joy too and I feel so lucky to have taken part in it. Now I’m wondering just how far I can push myself to go next year.
I enjoyed every single moment of my lock to lock swim.
Thank you both for organising it . Thanks also to all your helpers . I think you did a great job.
All the best for your future events.
Many thanks for the event, although even on the morning itself I still thought I was an idiot for agreeing to sign up, once I took the plunge I enjoyed every second in the water!
“Apologies” for also dragging Greg into this and thus providing the overall winner ;-)
It was a brilliantly organised event, absolutely perfect!
See you next year!
What a fabulous swim - we loved it - thank you so much for organising it and all the hard work you and your helpers put in - especially the delicious and much needed home made cakes! Hope it went well from your point of view - great to take advantage of such an amazing swimming opportunity near Oxford.
Just wanted to email to say I had an excellent time at Sunday’s event. Thought it was really well organised and a great swim route. I am really glad I noticed the advert for the event by the roadside when I was on the way to the International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford back in July. It brought some focus to the last 2 months open water training and was definitely worth the 4am start from Nottingham. I have every intention of coming back next year, very tempted by the 10k offering too.
What a brilliant event you organised yesterday. All the angles were well covered, from the car parking at Eynsham, the team of kayakers looking after us during the swim to the delicious cakes at the end!
When I committed to your event I decided to stick with the breaststroke that I am most comfortable with. I plan to spend the winter working on my front crawl technique so that when I return next year I can be just a little more competitive.
Very well done and sincere thanks for the swim on Sunday. Great experience and fun and extremely well organised, I was impressed.
I intend to continue this wild swimming lark, will attempt your 6k next year.
Thanks so much for the professional organisation of the Lock to Lock yesterday.
From registration to the bus back to Eynsham everyone was so supportive and encouraging. The chap who helped us out of the water was still so positive in helping even us stragglers who finished an hour and a half or so behind the leaders.
A fantastic event which was brilliantly organised.
Thanks once again
Thank you for organising the Lock to Lock swim. We thoroughly enjoyed it – great flapjacks too!
I just wanted to say thanks so much for helping me to get a place on the Lock to Lock swim, I really loved the event and will definitely be signing up again next year!
Thank you so much for a fabulous event today. Being hobby swimmers, and ‘great swim series’ participants, I can say today’s event was brill.
From the set-up at Eynsham lock, throughout the swim, to the cake and tea, all was superb.
To everyone involved, the stewards and safety crews, thanks.
I just wanted to thank you for a superb event this morning. The atmosphere was buzzing and the organisation of the swim second to none.
I can only imagine the hours of planning that went into today. Please pass on my thanks to the stewards, cake ladies and all the other people who were not visible but made the swim possible.
I feel really proud to have been part of this inaugural event, and I’m looking forward to more in future. Bring on the 10km, eh?
Thanks so much for organising this 4km river swim event- it was amazing today. The organisation was fantastic, the organisers friendly and the welcome at the end with the tea and cake was heart and body warming.
It was my first open water event - I thought I had just passed half way when the end was suddenly in sight, so I think I underestimated the work of the river flow - quite welcome.
Thanks so much, thoroughly enjoyed and well done for making it such a great experience I will definitely be back next year, maybe even for the 6km.
All the best
Having completed the most wonderful swim this morning I just wanted to thank you and everyone who helped to make this event run so smoothly.
There was laughter, happiness and sunshine wherever I went and the cakes were just amazing!
Thank you for putting up with us and for the good humour from you lovely people in the boats (my friend was wearing the earrings!).
Please do it again!
Debbie and Judy
PS I’ve raised over £1,300 for my charity too!! :-)
Thank you so much for putting on such a fantastic event. I thoroughly enjoyed it and thought it was all very well organised.
Your volunteers were particularly helpful and understanding of the need to have my bag readily available, and your cake team were so enthusiastic and jolly.
Thank you again and I look forward to coming to more of your events in the future.
Thanks for organising a very enjoyable swim. We loved the souvenir mugs & fantastic spread of cakes & coffee at the end. Thanks to all the helpers and kayakers who helped to run it so well. Would have liked the morning to have been a bit warmer, but hey ho!

I thoroughly enjoyed the swim this morning. (3 Degrees showing in the car made me question my sanity)
The organisation was excellent throughout. The ladies in the drink and cake tent at the end were wonderful, just what you need. I’ve never been to an event with that kind of welcome at the end - felt like part of a big team.
Very well done to you and the rest of the organising team, I shall certainly sign up to more of your events.
Regards, Bryan d’Arcy
Well done Swim Oxford
Fantastic event, great mug and a thick swim hat.
Really well organised. Great event. Top drawer!
