Lake Bala Charity Swimming Event 

Next Event Date:

 Saturday 3rd June 2017

The first Lake Bala Charity Swimming event was held on 11th June 2011 and was such a success that it is now at least an annual event.

There will be 750m and 1500m events over a GPS-laid-out course, with full safety cover and electronic timing.

The entry fee is a minimum of £10 donation per race, all of which goes to the charities selected as a direct donation.

The races will start and finish close to the Bala Watersports Centre, Bala Lake Foreshore, Pensarn Road, Bala, LL23 7SR.

There are no prizes to give out, so participants will merely gain the warm feeling of success and achievement by swimming fast and doing something worthwhile for charity at the same time.

Previously, entrants to the Sunday race have used this as a practice to familiarise themselves with the lake and the water conditions. They found this extremely helpful to their race practice.

There will be two distances:-

  • 750m at 14:00 hrs,
  • 1500m at 14:30 hrs.

These are timed so if you wish to do both then you can.

The courses will be GPS measured and marked with large orange buoys, and will use the start and exit points of the Bala Triathlon races.

If you wish to enter one of these races simply make a donation of a minimum £10 per race (ticking the gift aid box if you are eligible to do so) You MUST then e-mail your details using the link below:
