Join us at this 'Secret Location' in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, The Lake District, the home of Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth, to name a few. This inaugural swimrun weekend experience will take place in May 2018. We are offering two dates (12/13th and 19th/20th May) giving YOU, the participant, the unique opportunity to influence the decision as to when it will take place. The date will be based on the most popular choice which means you will need to keep both weekends free. We are also planning to run a Swimrun Event on the back of this the middle of September (15/16th) which is very exciting.
This is new for 2018 and is exclusive to Get Set 4 Success Ltd. The idea was borne when Dr. Julie Bradshaw visited the area and thought that the 'Secret Place' would provide an ideal location for such an experience. Julie will be coaching alongside swimrun expert Mike Alexander who has himself competed in numerous swimrun events around the UK and abroad.
There are a maximum number of participants for this Swimrun event in the Lake District. You will gain all that you need to enter your first race and even enhance skills for your next one. Whatever your background, this is a unique fun weekend experience and one that you need to sign up for now. Below are just some of the aspects that will be covered over the weekend:
Generic Open Water Swimming/Stroke analysis to enhance your swimrun performance
Swimrun Gear (the big topic!)
Racing with a tow system
Racing as a pair
Training for a specific race and hill work
Inside knowledge on the OtillO, Breca and Loveswimrun race series
PLUS a mini swimrun event to put into practice what you have learnt
Get in touch now and reserve your place. Only 20 participants will be allowed for this Inaugural Swimrun experience weekend event. We can also recommend some accommodation in Windermere which will suitably place you for the weekend.
BBC Radio have taken an interest in these events and on July 10th, 2017, spoke with Julie about the swimrun training and workshops/clinics. Click below to listen:
