FREE Social SwimRun sessions
If you are not sure that SwimRun is for you or you are worried about trying it for the first time, come along to a FREE social SwimRun meet-up and give SwimRun a go. Even if you just have some questions about SwimRun gear or want to meet some other like minded folk you can join us in Llanberis for a swim and a dip and a nice hot cup of tea afterwards at Petes Eats!
During the session we will complete a short SwimRun course of about 5km with approx 3km of running and 1.5km of swimming over a few short legs. We will stick together as a group so there will be no competitive element to it. We’ll move at the pace of the slowest and all look out for each other. The swims will be un-supported. We will mostly be swimming along the shore line, with one just crossing of the lake (approx 400m). You MUST bring a tow float with you.
The idea is practice open water swimming skills and to get used to running in a wetsuit and swimming in trainers, try out any other gear you want to use such as paddles and tow floats and practice transitioning from water to land and vice versa! Most of all, just to have some fun!! I’ll have a Zone3 Evolution Wetsuit for you to look at and some paddles and a pull buoy you can try if you like. To find more information about the gear you need for SwimRun, including tow floats and where to get them, take a look at our Knowlegde Base.
You don’t have to be signed up to our events to come along but hopefully you will be considering taking part! There will be a maximum of 15 people per group. The first to get in touch will have preference but I will also compile a waiting list. Although the session is free of charge, after a number of ‘no shows’ last year I am now taking a £10 paypal deposit that will be refunded after you complete the session. If you fail to attend or give less than 1 full weeks notice this will not be refunded.
Please fill in the form to register your interest, letting me know the date you’d like to come along. Please include your phone number in case your email bounces back or of any issues on the day. I’ll email you with further details.
Location: Llanberis, North Wales.
Dates for SwimRun sessions

Sign me up for a FREE SwimRun! - SORRY WE ARE FULL
PLEASE NOTE: This is a free of charge un-supported group SwimRun. If you join us you do so at your own risk. I do ask that wetsuits, bright swim hats and tow floats are worn for safety reasons. You will be given a SwimRun bib to wear. Each member of the group has a duty of care to the rest of the group but no-one will be expected to endanger themselves on behalf of another attendee. You must be fit enough to run 5km and swim 1.5km and have some openwater swimming experience. If you decide to leave the group during the SwimRun you do so at your own risk and neither Love SwimRun or any of the other attendees can take any responsibility for you.
