The Peter Pan Cup in Hyde Park 25 December 2018While children across London are eagerly waiting to unwrap their presents, members of the Serpentine Swimming Club are preparing to swim their traditional 100-yard (91-metre) Christmas Day race. Swimmers have met in London's Hyde Park on Christmas morning since 1864 to compete in the Christmas Day swim. The Peter Pan Cup is only open to members of the Serpentine Swimming Club who have qualified during the season. The icy Serpentine waters are usually below 4C (40F) degrees in the winter, so swimmers must become acclimatised over a period of time. The race on 25 December usually starts at 9am and takes place on the south bank of the lake, close to the Serpentine Cafe. Spectators are welcome, but you're advised to wrap up warm!
