How to Avoid Illness when Swimming in the Thames


The report found a link between the wearing of a wetsuit and becoming ill – suggesting that swimmers failed to wash themselves and their wetsuits properly after leaving the water and before eating.

Gillian McVeigh of Human Race said that showers would be provided to allow swimmers to wash after exiting the river during this year’s race, on July 21. “It’s definitely good to hear that there isn’t a high risk or Public Health England would have advised people against swimming in the Thames,” she said.
