SwimRun Snowdonia results

What an epic weekend we just enjoyed. 80 athletes made it onto the start line of the inaugural SwimRun Snowdonia Llyn i Llyn at Pen-Y-Gyrwd above Llyn Gwynant.

Just over 6 hours 15 minutes later, after  7 swims and lots of climbing, the 2 winners Alex Warner and Andrew Morgan of Team Warner-Morgan crossed the finish line 39km away in Llanberis on the other side of Wales highest mountain, Snowdon.

A full race report will follow tomorrow. In the mean time here are the cold hard times and results… and some images

Check out these SwimRun UK reviews

The best marketing for any event is the feedback from the people who raced it last time.

Chuffed that so many top athletes have such nice things to say about SwimRun UK Championships at Loch Lomond Inch By Inch.

https://www.racecheck.com/races/loch-lomond

Inch by Inch wasn’t on my radar but I signed up as a friend wanted to take it on. It looked tough but not outrageous and so it proved. The course was simply awesome, swimming in cool fresh water in lovely sunshine. The atmosphere was like old school triathlon with everyone smiling and enjoying each others company before, during and after the race. Organisation was solid with very supportive marshalls at key points and great feed stations. A great day out, highly recommended

Alan Cardwell – Head Coach Lanark Triathlon Club

Most favourite event ever!

Loch Lomond

All in all a great event. Great location and superbly organised throughout. Wanted to score more than 5 on many of the categories – natural beauty deserved a 10. And the food stations  and marshals a good 8 or 9!

Had a fantastic time and couldn’t recommend it enough. Just beautiful  swimming across Loch Lomond and running in a wetsuit really wasn’t do bad! Had been concerned it might have been an inch too far but the switch from swim to run to swim does give your arms  then legs a break.  Tho I was pretty much swum out by the end.

Definitely one to put on a list of ‘to do’ events.

Barbara Sweeney – Former GBR Squad Triathlete

Stunning race with a great atmosphere

You can read my race report here on what was a fantastic event.

Entered this event for a new challenge and to inspire people to sponsor me for charity and both were a resounding success! Not a great swimmer either but at no point felt unsafe.

The event is unique in that most of the course is a conservation area so you cannot access 80% of it till race day with adds an air of mystery to it byt the navigation is not too difficult and there were plenty of very cheery marshals.

All in all i’d have no hesitation in recommenting this race to anyone!

2016 SwimRun UK Championships. Sun 4th Sept. Loch Lomond Inch By Inch

inchbyinchflyer2016

The 2016 SwimRun UK Championships will take place on Sunday 4th September at Loch Lomond Inch by Inch.

11 Runs, 10 Swims, 8 islands, 1 stupidly big steep hill, lots and lots of smiles.

Many of you have said you want to race this type of event, but you are not fit enough for the long course. For 2016 we will also have a short course event featuring Luss and 4 of the islands on West Loch Lomond.

Entry will open this weekend.

Don’t forget Snowdonia Llyn i Llyn on Saturday 6th August 2016
