The Course

We are super excited to be working with Bewl Water again for our 2022 Bewl Water event. We have superb, undulating 6k, 10k and 21k courses and super resevoir open water swimming. The 6k and 10k course has easy entry and exits into the water and amazing trail running through the woods and tracks around the resevoir. The  6k, 10k and 21k courses head out along the shore, with swims across the natural bays, runs through woods and around the grass tracks. The 6k and 10k courses then weave their way back  to the finish as the 21k continues around the resevoir. The 21k course covers some awesome trails, quiet roads and serious hills on a 7k run through and around the nature reserve . Grass tracks take you back into wooded areas for a couple of swims before heading back around to the the finish. These are epic courses in and around Bewl Water and the surrounding area, you will love it. The 21k run sections are demanding on the latter part of the course, so plan your race well.
