Zoggs Named Sponsor of the Zoggs Half Mile at the Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival

Indoor and outdoor swimming brand Zoggs, has become the sponsor of the Zoggs Half Mile swim at the Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival. The event, which will see hundreds of swimmers of various ages and abilities complete a timed swim in the Thames, will take place Sunday 11th July.


The Zoggs Half Mile sets off from the event’s festival village, where spectators will be able to cheer on swimmers whilst enjoying live music, food, shopping, and more, in a socially distanced environment. Zoggs will support the half mile swimmers with advice, kit offers and a personal welcome from Olympic Swimmer, Keri-anne Payne. All Zoggs Half Mile finishers will be rewarded with a medal and funky Zoggs swim hat made especially for the occasion.


Zoggs International Brand and Marketing Manager, Charlotte Thomas, commented: “The Zoggs  Half Mile is great, it allows us to support hundreds of swimmers with a variety of reasons for swimming, whether a 12-year-old trying to push themselves, a newbie to open water swimming, or an avid swimmer wanting to get a PB.


We welcome the chance to be with them through signing up, into the event and then greeting them at the finishing gantry. This year is extra special as we will have Zoggs ambassador and Olympian, Keri-anne Payne with us, offering swimmers the chance to meet a World champion.”


Yvonne Turner, Partnership Manager for Henley Swim adds: “Zoggs is a great fit for this partnership as an accessible and well-known brand with variety of products for varying needs. They have a great range of products ideal for the outdoor swimming community and we welcome their immersive approach to this activity; it adds so much value and optimises the experience for our swimmers.”


The Outdoor Swimmer Henley Swim Festival offers multiple distances during the day, accommodating children aged 8 upwards, including a 200-metre swim (one adult can accompany the child for free), Zoggs half mile, one mile, suits vs skins and 4-mile challenge. This year the event will also host celebrity guests in an exclusive, invite only, challenge to see how many miles can be completed in 6 hours.
