Love SwimRun Llanberis

Swim in the deep clear waters of Llyn Padarn and run beneath the majestic summit of Snowdon 

Love SwimRun Llanberis Event Schedule:

Please see the website for full details about the event before entering.

The Course

Love SwimRun Llanberis will take place in Padarn Country Park, Llanberis, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The multi transition course in North Wales will involve a total of approximately 3.5km of swimming and 12.5km of running (Sprint course is 1.3km of swimming and 4.7km of running). The running route will take in some of Snowdonia’s most stunning scenery and views on mainly off road terrain, including beautiful woodland, a historic monument and a tough climb up into the old slate quarries that tower above the valley. The swim sections will all take place in Llyn Padarn, entering and exiting the lake at various locations, so by the time you reach the finish line you will have swum the entire length and explored every corner! The course will be fully marked with marshals on land and on the water.
