About Us

The Llangorse Triathlon and Swim took place for the first time on September 20th and 21st 2014. The events were only able to take place thanks to the generosity of the Blackham family, who own the lake, Llangorse Sailing Club and the Llangorse Lake Users Group.

On September 26th and 27th 2015 we were back with more than 200 swimmers and triathletes competing during the weekend.

In 2016 we decided to concentrate on the Big Swim and were proud to be able to welcome more than 200 swimmers to Llangorse. Our 2017 swim takes place on September 30th 2017 and we’re hoping to see more than 250 people in the lake.

The Big Swim team is led by local triathlete Nicola Goodwin together with Jules and Ian from Hereford Triathlon Club, Llangorse Sailing Club, local sports clubs and community groups and numerous volunteers.

Nicola has more than a decade of triathlon experience and has represented the Great Britain Age Group teams at numerous European and World Long Distance events. She is also a BTF Level Two coach and has extensive experience of organising triathlons, duathlons and other sports competitions and training events.

The weekend events are only possible thanks to the support of the Llangorse Lake Community, the people who live, work and play in this great location. Wherever possible we are using local companies and hope that you will support them by staying, eating and buying locally.

If you have any questions regarding the event please don’t hesitate to contact us at llangorsetri@hotmail.co.uk and we look forward to seeing you at Llangorse Lake in September 2017.
