Love SwimRun Llanberis, North Wales, UK

The original Welsh SwimRun event! Sponsored by Zone3 and Wild Trail

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

Love SwimRun Llanberis will take place in Padarn Country Park, Llanberis, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The multi transition course will involve a total of approximately 3.5km of swimming and 12.5km 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! The course will be fully way marked and marshalled.
