Swimrun is now my only multisport since getting hooked at the Inch by Inch Loch Lomond (sadly no longer held).
Other than the Inch, I’ve done
- Great Swimrun Windermere
- Breca Buttermere
- Swim Oxford SwimRun
- several AKA Mustard Swimruns (Bedford, Peterborough, Grafham)
Have another AKA at St Ives (Cambridge rather than Cornwall) lined up for the end of the month.
All have been good fun, Oxford and AKA have solo options.
Need to get used to swimming with the kit and work out what works for you, my shoes are quite buoyant so I use a smaller pull buoy as don’t need the flotation. Bigger paddles don’t make me any faster, so use smallish ones. Bungy tether means you don’t have to keep checking where your partner is in the swim and helps even up swim pace.
