Route information
All courses for the Grafham Water Swimrun will be 1 lap routes, the 21k being a full lap of the entire reservoir so participants can explore every inch of the stunning body of water.
This event boasts easy entry and exits into the water and amazing trail running through the woods and tracks around the reservoir. The courses head out along the north shore, with swims across the natural bays, runs through woods and around the reed banks. The shorter courses then weave their way back along the north shore to the finish as the 21k heads off through the nature reserve and around the reservoir.

Love these events. Great for first timers and old hands alike. Supportive atmosphere with plenty of experts on hands to share advice and swap stories. Highly recommended UK SwimRun events!

I have done several practice swim runs in and around my river at home, but this was my first actual event. Good location and great event. The water level in the reservoir was very low so the distance we covered was longer, but that was just a bonus as I really enjoyed it.

First swimrun event, loved it!Some of the descents into the reservoir base were a bit scarily steep, and one entry (2) was unpleasantly muddy, but we (me and 4 friends) had a great day.
