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.

Hi swimmers. Well done to everybody who swam.. I’m delighted to tell you that the swimmer who was treated by paramedics at the start is sitting up and talking in hospital. A huge thank you to our amazing team of volunteer and professional medics. The results are online here – RESULTS 2017
Hi swimmers. We’re looking forward to welcoming you to Llangorse on September 30th. All the information that you need for the swim is in the race pack above which you can download. The lake temperature is currently fluctuating between 15 and 17 degrees and we’ll be posting regular updates on our Facebook page and via twitter next week. We have been able to release another 20 places for the swim but we will be full so please make sure that any friends you have that still haven’t entered don’t leave it too late. Please just get in touch if you have any questions. Nicola and the Big Swim team
The Big Swim 2017 will take place on Saturday September 30th at 2pm. Entries are now open and there are some great bargains available for early birds. We hope to see you all in September – Happy Swimming……..
Thank you to everybody who swam, marshaled and supported today. We’ve already made a list of ways that we can improve for next year including staggering the waves more so the 1.5 swimmers don’t have such a long wait, more buouys, more cake (gosh you were all hungry) and a private changing tent. We are taking orders for t-shirts at £10 each. Please email us with the size you’d like and we’ll send you details of how to pay. Please let us know by Wednesday
