Length: 43 km
Location: Lake District, UK
Imagine a land of extremes: the home of England’s highest mountain and its deepest lake. An ancient landscape of craggy hilltops, mountain tarns, rugged trails and glittering lakes. That place is the Lake District National Park, and for centuries it has captivated the imagination of adventurers, explorers and intellectuals alike.
This is the setting for Breca Buttermere - the UK's original swimrun race. The courses will test you on many levels: the lakes are cold and deep; the ascents are steep and the descents are technical. It’s a course that favours the complete athlete.
Run: 38km | Swim: 6km | Transitions: 22 | Total length: 43km | Ascent: 1,750m
