As Keen As Mustard Nene Park SwimRun

Nene Park, Peterborough

Nene Park, Peterborough, UK

Sun 04th October 2020

4 races

£25.00 - £190.00

Organiser's Description

A swimrun event at Peterborough's glorious Nene Park. An epic course in and around Nene Park and the surrounding area with four races to choose from.

The swimming for the 10k option is in the beautiful Gunwade Lake and the River Nene, with easy entry and exit points. Running is predominantly flat, off road with tracks, field and compact trail. A great newcomer's course. The first half of the 21k option is a little more demanding, with up and downsteam river swim sections. The running is more undulating and has a couple of quiet road sections before it joins the 10k course for the 2nd half of the race.
