Hello and welcome to Love SwimRun

Love SwimRun launched in 2016 with our inaugral event Love SwimRun Llanberis, the first swimrun event in Wales! SwimRun is Britain’s newest and fastest growing endurance sport and you can expect to see lots more events taking off in the UK.  Love SwimRun Llanberis 2017 was a great success this year with a new and improved course and we’ll be repeating this again in June 2018! We are excited to announce a new SwimRun event Love SwimRun Holy Island – a spectacular linear course on the Anglesey coast happening this September! You’ll need to sign up fast for these fun SwimRuns as we only have limited spaces!

This year we also launched our new swim event in Llyn Padarn, Llanberis: The Big Welsh Swim! A multi distance open water swim – with a choice to swim the length of the lake, either once, twice or three times! We have a mid length option too, plus spaces for juniors and a non-wetsuit option! Go on, dive in! We also have a new running event The Holy Trail, a heavenly 15km coastal trail run on Anglesey. Start at South Stack lighthouse and race back to Rhoscolyn to claim The Holy Trail grail!

Love SwimRun events are sponsored by Zone3 & Wild Trail!

In light of the very windy weather forecast for Saturday we met up with Colwyn Bay Watersports, who are heading up our water safety at Holy Island, to come up with plans B & C! The first two swims are pretty exposed and could be very choppy. We are hoping that the forecast improves this week but if the safety crew are not happy we may have to move or shorten those swims. fear not though! The event will go ahead and we're sure you'll still have a great Swimrun! ... See MoreSee Less
