Elliot Clark from K J Smith Solicitors completes 4 mile River Thames swim

Published: 18th July 2018

Elliot Clark from our Head Office took part in a 4 mile open water swim on Sunday 15th July, raising over £600.00 for our longstanding charity partner The Chiltern Centre.

Elliot swam with Olympic silver medallist Jazz Carlin and former Olympian and TV personality Greg Whyte OBE on the day. He caught up with us after the race, which he completed in 2 hours 11 minutes. “I felt very unqualified, as out of the four other swimmers who swam the 4 mile endurance distance, one was a former channel swimmer and two were Olympians – let’s just say I was pleased to see the finish line”.
