Breca loch gu loch

Next event: 29th September 2018
Location: Loch Ness, Scotland

A beautiful race in an incredible landscape, with tough terrain, deep lochs, island hopping and rugged trails. Swim through five Lochs (two for the sprint) - Lochs Ness, Duntelchaig, Ceo Glais, Mhor & Tarff - they're deep, cold, and legend has it, one is inhabited! The runs take in old trails, forest trails, rough trails and no trails: there's no shortage of variation along our incredible South Loch Ness route.
