The Big Brutal Swim will take place at the stunning, glacially formed Llyn
Padarn which is known for being sixth deepest lake in Wales. It's also home
to a fish called the Arctic Char, a species left over from the time of the
last Ice Age - although none of our swimmers have spotted one yet.
Thank you for organizing a great swim event! Great atmosphere
before and after the swim, felt like I was at the lake with friends!

This is held at the same venue as The Brutal Extreme Triathlons and therefore
great preparation for the event later in the month.
This event is open to wetsuit and non-wetsuit swimmers. There will be separate
categories for wetsuit and skins swimmers.
The distances available are 2.5k, 5k and 10k. T-shirts to all swimmers.
