Organiser's Description

The first in the Fenland Runner 5k Intro Swimrun series and the HEAD UK Grass Roots Swimrun series brings us to the beautiful Box End Park.

This lovely course weaves its way around and through hilly wooded areas in the Park, on grass tracks and in and out of the lake, with easy entry and exit points for the 5k and 10k courses. The 21k course has more demanding river swims with challenging entry and exit points before it joins the 5k/10k course for the lake swims.

The 5k/10k is an excellent newcomers' swimrun course, consisting of a 5k lap which the 5k competitors complete once and the 10k twice. The 21k is two laps of a 10.5k course, the first 5k leaves the Park and has river swim sections with some upstream swimming, and testing entry and exit points. The run sections are flat and on compact trail, woodland tracks and grassland trails with naturally occurring obstacles.
