Breca Coniston SwimRun 2017 Event - Race Connections

Breca Coniston SwimRun 2017

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.

Join us for the inaugural event on 7th October 2017. As the pioneer edition, we’re offering a reduced price of £125 per person. Entries are for teams of two only.


Welcome! As a Breca Swimrunner, you will take part in ultimate endurance challenges through incredible landscapes carefully selected to fulfill your desire for adventure, a break from the norm and for paths less trodden.

The three key things to know about swimrun are:
– You switch between swimming and running many times during the race
– You participate in pairs, making it a team event
– You swim in your trainers and run in your wetsuit – there are no gear changes

Run: 38km | Swim: 5km | Transitions: 16 | Total: 42km


Breca Coniston – £125 per person for the first 50 teams, £125 per person thereafter

The entry fee includes:
– event swimrun vest
– swim cap
– finishers’ t-shirts
– finishers’ medals
– Prizes
– race timing
– race nutrition and hydration
– free event photography
