Excellent course , brilliant organisation Great event company Recommend to anyoneAll it needs is a bit more if a event village feel to the start and finish- but that may spoil the chilled swim run atmosphere so it is a tough callWill race again at Nene Park , already booked for Bewl this year

I would like to extend my great thanks for putting on such a wonderful Swimrun event last weekend. It was a fantastic yet challenging course staying true to the swimrun ethos of being closer to nature. The marshalling was top notch and I felt very safe throughout with the waymarkings being clear. The swim exits were a particular highlight with ropes and climbs adding to the course details. Brilliant event!

This was a fantastic event, the course was clearly marked out, and well marshalled, the lake was lovely and warm, and clear before we all started wading into it! The support paddlers were friendly, close enough to give a feeling of safety, but not intrusively so. Very easy to get to and plenty of on-site parking.
