Courses & Costs

Please note that the 12km and 7km Events are now Full.
The main Wild Wye Swim has two course.  A small number of entries will be available on the day:

Wild Wye 12km        Kerne Bridge to Huntsham Bridge              £50 (Entry on the Day only)
Wild Wye 7km          Lower Lydbrook  to Huntsham Bridge      £40 (Entry on the Day only)

A minimum age of 16 applies.  Wetsuits will be compulsory this year.  Any type of wetsuit which covers your torso, so not necessarily a swimming one or ‘wrist-to-ankle’ style. This is to keep the swim safe and simple in this first year of this event, so apologies to all the skin swimming aficionados.  Also no tow-floats will be allowed, so as to facilitate the safety boats and other swimmers.

Swimmers are also encouraged to fundraise for SARA.

There will also be a family-friendly 1km option, at Huntsham Bridge. Accompanied juniors will be allowed to swim this, 1:1 with an adult (18 or over). Wetsuits will not be required for this 1km swim.  Advance entries will close on 17 Sept.

Wild Wye 1km            Solo entry (minimum age 16)                         £10 (£15 on the day)
Wild Wye 1km            Accompanied Junior (i.e. two people)        £15 (£20 on the day)
