The Big Brutal Swim

The Big Brutal Swim


The Big Brutal Swim will take place at the stunning, glacially formed Llyn Padarn which is known for being sixth deepest lake in Wales. It's also home to a fish called the Arctic Char, a species left over from the time of the last Ice Age - although none of our swimmers have spotted one yet!

This is held at the same venue as The Brutal Extreme Triathlons and therefore great preparation for the event in September.

This event is open to wetsuit and non-wetsuit swimmers. There will be separate categories for wetsuit and skins swimmers. The distances available are 2.5k, 5k and 10k. T-shirts to all swimmers.

The swim course is a 1.25k lap; the 2.5k swimmers will complete 2 laps; 5k swimmers 4 laps and 10k swimmers 8 laps.
