Not quite ready to book?

Save this event for later and come back to it when you're ready.

The Lake District is too perfect for swimrun for us to have only one event there, which is why we have returned for the newest addition to our UK series: Breca Coniston. Explore four of the most beautiful and imposing of the English lakes: Coniston Water, Windermere, Rydal Water and Grasmere. The course follows tracks and paths along valleys and over passes in the midst of splendid and varied Lakeland scenery.
