Races summary
Here's what races are available for St Ives, Huntingdon Swimrun
Route information
We start the 10 and 21k at the fabulous Hotel and Marina and after an epic first run along the Ouse Way we slip into the water in front of The Ferryman Pub in Holywell. An upstream swim brings us out onto beautiful meadows. Running along the riverside paths and around the meadow , we come to the river again and a cross over onto the nature reserve. An awesome run around RSPB Fen Drayton brings us back into the river.
It's all about river swimming with this event, with up and down stream sections and naturally occuring exits and entry points. The running is mainly flat compacted track with some grass trails. The 10k course is one loop of the course and the 21k is two (which makes the 10k around 10.5k but whos counting!).
