The Llangorse Swim is back in 2020 with four distances to choose from. The swim takes place in the beautiful Llangorse Lake, the largest natural lake in south Wales. Swimming is normally forbidden in the lake so thanks to the Blackham family, Llangorse Sailing Club and the Llangorse Users Group, competitors will get the only chance in the year to enjoy the beautiful water.

The course will take the swimmers from Llangorse Sailing Club, across to the far bank with views of St Gastyn’s church and back towards The Crannog – the only such ancient lake dwelling in England and Wales.

The race will be chip timed and the course measured and clearly marked. Wetsuits are optional unless the water temperature drops below 14 degrees celcius. All competitors will get a gift as they finish the event and a special Llangorse silicone swimming hat plus hot drinks and loads of cake. You can also buy a specially designed Afanc t-shirt for £10. 

Registration and the prize giving will be in the Llangorse Sailing Club and, once again, we'll be helping to raise money for the club funds, local charities and the lakeside defibrillator funds. Hot drinks and snacks will be available from the club and spectators can watch the swim from the fabulous balcony.

There is ample accommodation situated right next to the race start at the Lakeside Caravan and Camping Park. The lakeside and village contains excellent places to eat, drink and relax and play areas for children so it’s an ideal place to base yourself for a family weekend.
