Swim Wales Challenge Series 2021

New to 2021, a series of four open water events will be held across some of the most iconic Welsh locations. As a newcomer or an athlete, a beginner or an adventure seeker, regardless of your prior experience or ability, there is an opportunity to be part of something incredible. The Challenge Series offers both elite age group races and open competitions. Offering something for people of all ages and abilities, the series takes place on the following dates and locations:

  • July 31st Parc Bryn Bach
  • August 07th Plas Y Brenin
  • August 14th Llys Y Fran
  • September 04th Llandegfedd Lake

The Swim Wales Challenge Series gives competitors a chance to tour the stunning locations Wales has to offer. From the majestic Snowdon at Plas Y Brenin to the tranquillity of Llandegfedd Lake, competitors will have the opportunity to compete in a 1km or 3km race. We’ll also be bringing some team spirit to the events with a 4km Team Relay!

On completion of each race competitors will be rewarded with a bespoke Challenge Series commemorative medal and a photo opportunity. Why not aim to take part in all four events and be in with the chance of winning the fifth Challenge Series medal to make up the famous Draig Goch! In addition there will be a prize for the overall Challenge Series winner, the fastest swimmer in attendance of all four events.
