The event is aimed at attracting more into the sport and getting people active in a safe environment. The Fleetwood SwimRun will be utilising the YMCA swimming pool along the Sea Front, The Esplanade and the beautiful outdoor surrounds of Marine Gardens, Fleetwood.

The Fleetwood Swimrun is an ideal 'starter' event for those wishing to get into the sport of swimrun which has come from Scandavia and is ever growing in the UK.
