Hi swimmers. We’re hoping that the 2019 Llangorse Big Swim will take place on Saturday 7th September. We hope to confirm the date and open the online entry in January. See you in 2019!
We’ve sent out the competitor information pack to you all this afternoon by email. Please just get in touch if you’ve got any questions. See you on the 15th – Nicola and the Big Swim volunteers
We’re really pleased to have had so many swimmers, water lovers and outdoor junkies contact us during the past few weeks. This year we’re delighted to have swimming specialists Selkie joining us with a tent full of their new products and loads of sale items. Photojournalism student Amy Gibbons will also be featuring many of our swimmers in her project focusing on lake swimmers. There will be the normal supply of unlimited tea, coffee, biscuits and cake for the swimmers plus something very special is happening on the lake. We can’t tell you any more but you won’t be able to miss it. See you all on September 15th. Nicola and the Big Swim team……
We’re delighted that the British Heart Foundation have approved our application for a defibrillator for Llangorse Sailing Club. The Big Swim will be funding the extra £600 needed from the money raised at this year’s event and the sailing club will be providing a cabinet. The defib will be on the outside of the clubhouse so that it can be used by anybody at the lake. We hope it will be in place within the next few weeks.
The Llangorse Lake Big Swim will be held on the afternoon of Saturday September 15th. We hope to welcome 250 swimmers of all ages, sizes and abilities wearing trunks, costumes and wetsuits to the beautiful Llangorse Lake. In 2018 we will once again be able to offer you changing rooms and showers and we will be adding more markers in the lake to make it easier for you to navigate.
