With the spectacular backdrop of the Snowdon Mountain range, the historic Dolbadarn Castle and Welsh quarries; Llanberis Lakside was the setting for this year's Big Welsh Swim. Swimmers caught the narrow gauge train to the end of Llyn Padarn to the start and chose to swim either a length of the 3km lake, once, twice or even three times!
In the 6km race Emma Croxon was 42nd in 2:35:35 (5th AG); Liz Aitken was 53rd in 2:50:29 (6th AG) and Sara O'Callaghan was 61st in 3:15:40 (9th AG). In the 3km race Sarah Taylor was 83rd 1:31:30 (10th AG).
