The Great British River Swim

The Great British River Swim is a nationwide community project which enables athletes of all abilities to protect British rivers each and every time they swim.

Every time a user uploads a Strava swim to the platform, we donate 1p for every 100m swam to The Rivers Trust (

As an example, if you swim 10 lengths of your local 25m swimming pool, you will have raised 5p.


Likewise, you're 1.5km triathlon distance swim will generate 15p towards the conservation of British rivers. 

The project is completely free to use and you can choose whether or not your activity is visible to other users. 

Users can sign-up via e-mail and connect with friends and fellow competitors from across the country.
