Llangorse Big Swim

Eat - Sleep - Swim - Repeat

Over 120 swimmers gathered at Llangorse Lake on Sep 26 2015 to swim in a lake that is, for many, mythical and magical. Swimmers ranged from the novice through to the experienced long distance wild water folks who love full immersion. The event was organized by Nicola Goodwin, members of the Hereford Triathlon Club and assisted by volunteers. The scenery and the day was cracking.

Amid The Inversion

Hot & Cold Air Works Its Magic

What's an Inversion. It's a play on hot and cold air. For more details click here.

Most swimmers had no idea that a classic inversion took place before the swim in the lower valley. Looking down below from above at a bivvy or wild camping spot Mark had established the night before it set the tone for the day. It was going to be a celebration of nature and our natural gravitation towards water.


We like to make things an adventure so Mark hiked and bivvied to the swim. How could he let the opportunity go to experience Mynyyd Llangorse and the Black Mountains once again?He couldn't so off he for another explorative time. It was only a short route from Bwlch at 13 miles but a new one and they are always worth doing. Over tops, gazing through valleys and upon the slopes, exoploring hills forts and scrambling through bracken it was a great way to meet with the swim and bring good vibes.
