The Breca National Championships and Breca Rankings will allow endurance elites and multisport enthusiasts to compete alongside each other across our stunning race locations,” said Breca founder, Ben de Rivaz. “Swimrun is rapidly becoming the ‘A’ sport for many of our athletes, it’s going to be a thrilling competitive arena.”
Swimrun involves teams of two traversing trail and open water, running in their wetsuits and swimming in their shoes. It is one of the fastest-growing sports globally, with Breca the first to establish races in the U.K. and New Zealand, and the only swimrun series across two continents. Having started with just 14 teams at its inaugural swimrun event in the Lake District (U.K.) in 2015, 2018 saw 630 teams competing at Breca events globally.
“Swimrun is all about teammates working together to complete a unique endurance challenge in spectacular surroundings,” said de Rivaz. “You learn a lot about yourself and your own physical and mental capabilities, as well as connecting with nature in a truly immersive way – it’s you and your partner working with and, sometimes, against the elements across land and water.”.
Breca offers two distances to race over: Full-distance courses covering 37-54km with projected finish times of 6-10 hours, and 18-22km Sprint courses that take 2.5-4.5 hours to complete. A team entry (two people) costs from £225 for a Sprint and £330 for a Full.
Teams who enter three races of the same distance across the season will receive a 30% discount to their third event.
