Did the Breca Gower in 2019
Really well organised race and great spirit amongst the competitors. Registration and pre-race brief was a breeze, transport to the start line via bus. Checkpoints well stocked with supplements/snacks/drinks and the post-race beer tasted good.My first Swimrun but certainly not my last - great experience and highly encourage anyone thinking of partaking in the sport to get on this one. Slightly more expensive than the others, but as a once-a-year cost it aint too bad.
