The open water swims in Llyn Padarn will be followed by varied multi terrain running routes including a tough climb up into the old slate quarries that overlook the valley. There is also a 6km Sprint route that takes in the first sections of the Full course and makes a great first time swimrun! The Sprint is open to solo entries and children from age 10 can also take part.
