The Course

The Race is inspired by the incredible ÖtillÖ in Sweden, home of the Swimrun Sport. Love SwimRun Llanberis will take place in Padarn Country Park, Llanberis, Snowdonia National Park, North Wales. The multi transition course at Llanberis in North Wales will involve a total of approximately 4km of swimming and 12km of running (route may be subject to small changes). The running route will take in some of Snowdonia’s most stunning scenery and views on mainly off road terrain, including beautiful woodland, a historic monument and a tough climb up into the old slate quarries that tower above the valley. The swim sections will all take place in Llyn Padarn, entering and exiting the lake at various locations, so by the time you reach the finish line you will have swum the entire length! The course will be marked and the finalised route and map will be published one month prior to the event date.

The temperature in the lake can vary quite a lot depending on the amount of rainfall and sunshine we have but we will keep you updated on the water temperature in the run up to the event.

Charity Partner

Love SwimRun are supporting Snowdonia Giving during this event. Snowdonia gives a lot to us... we need to give a little back.

Snowdonia National park is seeing increasing numbers of visitors meaning that the area is more than ever in danger of becoming a victim of it’s very own success! To ensure that Snowdonia retains its beauty, natural diversity and unique appeal we need to ensure that it's environment, wildlife and and community are not degraded or destroyed in anyway. Snowdonia Giving is a way of us all easily donating a small amount of money to help save this precious place  through projects such as path maintenance, new path building, improved accessability, tree planting, invasive rhododendron clearance, and litter picks.

You can make a voluntary donation when you enter any of our events or you can donate on line at www.snowdoniagiving.wales Thank you!
