As Keen As Mustard Grafham Water SwimRun

4 races

Organiser's Description

We are super excited to be working with Anglian Water for our Grafham Water event. Superb, undulating 5k, 10k and 21k courses and super resevoir open water swimming. The 5k and 10k course has easy entry and exits into the water and amazing trail running through the woods and tracks around the resevoir.

The 5k, 10k and 21k courses head out along the north shore, with swims across the natural bays, runs through woods and around the reed banks. The 5k and 10k courses then weaves their way back along the north shore to the finish as the 21k continues around the resevoir. The 21k course covers some awesome trails on a 5.5k run through the nature reserve with a well deserved swim in front of the car park on the south shore. A short road run takes you back into wooded areas for a couple of swims, a cheeky little surpise in the middle of the wood before heading back around the dam wall to the last swim and the finishWe have an epic course in and around Nene Park and the surrounding area.

We are extremely fortunate to have kind permission from Castor Parish Council and Alwalton Parish Council to use all the epic paths and trails around their beautiful villages. Without their support we just wouldn't have such an amazing course.
