The Inaugural Fleetwood SwimRun 

Sunday 6th October, 2019

The Inaugural Fleetwood SwimRun will be the first of its kind in the UK and will take place on Sunday 6th October, 2019. 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. Participants will run in pairs around the course which will have a few runs and swims. Unique to this event is that the YMCA swimming pool will be used making it a very safe environment if you are new to this type of sport and before transitioning to the usual open water type SwimRun events.

The course starts at Marine Gardens taking participants up to Rossall Point and back and through the boating lakes, to the Lower Lighthouse at the far end and various swims in the pool. This event is also aimed at those who wish to be involved in a fun, safe environment and to take part in physical activity for health and well-being.
