Guided & supported 10km sociable swimwalk - a fun & exhilarating excursion with beautiful woodland trails, 4 secluded swims & plenty of cake & hot drinks!
This is a fully guided and supported SwimWalk around the wooded tracks and trails of Northern Snowdonia. The route involves 400m of ascent and is an exhilarating excursion for those that take it on. The scenery is beautiful – you can expect forest fire roads, technical narrow foot paths, secluded lakes, and fantastic views. The route is circular, so you’ll finish up back at your cars.
Why the ‘Secret’?
Its all part of the fun and adventure! We like surprises and we like to keep our favourite trails and swimming spots under the radar, sharing them with just a special few!
It's not a race!
This is a sociable event, not a race, so there is no medal for you at the end, but you will take away with you some fantastic memories, some new friends, and a big smile (and possibly cold toes!)!
We will provide the following:
- Qualified Guides: you’ll have no worries about getting lost, just relax and enjoy your surroundings and the SwimWalk!
- Mobile support: located as close as possible to each swim will be a van carrying your spare gear should you wish to change or drop out, first aid provision and lots of food and drink to keep you going! We will not have access to it between two of the swims though.
- Snacks and drink: we ask you to carry some high calorie snacks and hot drinks on the challenge yourself to keep you fuelled up and to help keep you warm, but we’ll also provide some snacks and hot drinks and will have them waiting for you at each checkpoint throughout the challenge.
- First Aid: guides are fully first aid trained and will be carrying first aid kits.
- Emergency transport: If something happens and you can’t continue, through injury or tiredness or because you get too cold, we’ll take care of getting you back to the start. We’ll also carry any spare clothing that you may want at during the SwimWalk.
Pace, Ability & Experience
The is a sociable challenge and the ability of the members of the group will vary so please be aware that you may not be traveling as fast as you might if you were walking alone! We will need to keeo a good. pace up in order to keep warm warm though so good walking fitness is essential. The emphasis is on keeping moving, not speed! The pace will be dictated by the guide, taking into account the ability of the group as a whole.
The swim durations will be controlled depending on the location, temperature and weather taking into account the welfare of the group as a whole (from approx 10 to 20 mins) just have a dip or stay in for the duration!) and you will be asked to change quickly when you get and out. If you struggle during the event and this begins to impact on the well being of the rest of the group we may politely ask you to retire, or at least skip one or two of the longer walking sections.
PLEAE BE AWARE THAT THERE IS NO WATER SAFETY SUPPORT ON ANY OF THE SWIMS - YOU MUST BE A CONFIDENT AND CAPABLE SWIMMER.
