Organiser's Description

If you love open water swimming this is your chance to experience an incredible open water swim race in the stunning Llynnau Mymbyr, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

One of the most photographed spots in Snowdonia, with the Snowdon range reflecting in the water if you want a swim with a view, this is unbeatable. The lake is around 3/4 mile long, with a depth of 30 feet and a delta halfway along the north shore which disects the lake and gives it it's plural name.
