Breca coniston

Next event: 2020 dates to be released soon
Location: The Lake District, England

The Lake District is too perfect for swimrun for us to have only one event there, which is why we have returned for the newest addition to our UK series: Breca Coniston.

Explore four of the most beautiful and imposing of the English lakes: Coniston Water, Windermere, Rydal Water and Grasmere. The course follows tracks and paths along valleys and over passes in the midst of splendid and varied Lakeland scenery.
