After an obliteration of this year's events we're treading lightly through what remains of 2020, but with lots of energy and enthusiasm. With that in mind we're teaming up with Megan Marcelle Yoga to launch YOGARUN - full details here.
The first YOGARUN will be on Saturday 10th Oct - our blog readers can claim 30% off with this code "weswimrun30". We hope this will become a weekly event through winter and beyond.
With LOCKDOWN II underway we're hosting 4 races to help keep you and us sane:
We're finally launching our first swimrun event! It's a swimrun with a difference based at the foot of Cadair Idris - full details & entry here.
What's more, final arrangements for Dyfi SWIMRUN are underway and we hope to open entries by 1st January.
Our Swimrun Workshop was a great success and we will be hosting more in the future. Big thanks of HEAD Swimming, Colting Wetsuits, Zone 3 & Orca for supplying demo wetsuits.
OUTDOOR SWIMMER MAG
I've enjoyed writing for the SwimRunner section of this super magazine - if you've missed the articles you can catch up with a special WESWIMRUN subscriber discount of 72%(!) off the online version here. I've kept a record of the articles here.
This has proved to be an oasis of calm during this odd period. With strictly limited numbers our Collingwood swimmers have enjoyed supervised outdoor swimming in what's felt like another world. We hope to continue and grow this should 2021 allow. In addition our Collingwood swimmers raised £5,747.58 for the charity Level Water!
Follow Collingwood on Instagram if you are interested in updates at this venue.
The WELSH 3000s
We're dedicating the final Bank Holiday weekend of May 2021 to the Welsh 3000s, with options for sub-24hr, and 2 day attempts - full details here. If you have a super-fit group who want to target sub 15hrs, or a chilled group who want to take 3 days - both can be arranged.
Dyfi X Trail Marathon - Half & Full
Dyfi ULTRA - 50 miles
Cadair X - Possibly the toughest Half Marathon in the World
Tal Y Llyn Swim - 2km, 10km
Aberdovey Swim - 4km, 8km, 13km
Tal Y Llyn - 6hrs to complete as many laps of 5.1km as you can - the course record is there to be set!
Dyfi Swimrun - Planning something very special for the home of "Jog 'n Dip" - total around 18km with 15% swimming (tbc)
TEES & HOODS
Our event related clothing can be purchased directly from our Teemill store here. We chose Teemill as they had the best environmental procedures that we could find.
Really sorry for how the vast majority of our events have been affected in 2021, and really grateful for your understanding and patience. Keep active and we'll hopefully be out there with you soon. Remember you can always look back at event memories at our flickr albums here.
