Norwich’s new river swim sells out

A new event for Norwich which will see dozens of people swim in the River Wensum has sold out.

The Norwich Six Bridge river swim will be held for the first time on July 8 as part of Norwich's Lord Mayor's celebrations.

Starting from 9am, 90 people will swim one mile under six bridges along the river from New Mills Yard to Cow Tower.

The event has been organised by Active Outdoor Sport.

It is one of three sporting events happening over the Lord Mayor's weekend. The Gas Hill Gasp will see brave cyclists try to become king of the hill as they sprint up to the top of Norwich's steepest hill on July 6.
