Breca Swimrun has launched a campaign and competition - #swimrunjourney – aimed at encouraging Swimrunners to share their experiences of discovering and immersing themselves in this amazing sport.

Many of you have tales about our journey into swimrun, from how you found it, first experiences, training adventures, testing new equipment, race reports to just being that weird person running around the countryside in a wetsuit that everyone points at.

It’s these #swimrunjourney stories we want to share.

We want to hear about your swimrun adventures, not just for our amusement, but so the wider swimrun community can benefit from your accumulated experience.

Many people still are discovering swimrun for the first time. Whether they are experienced athletes or not, they have questions about the sport, equipment, training and racing. Your stories can help answer these questions.

The #swimrunjourney competition will run for the next three months. Each week we will publish the most well written, funniest and most inspiring of your #swimrunjourney articles. The feature that receives the most likes, comments and shares will win the grand prize of a free team entry to a Breca Swimrun event of choice. The winner will be announced on Friday 6th April 2018.
