Durty Events and Triathlon Edinburgh are organizing Go Swim Loch Lomond in Loch Lomond, Scotland on September 7th 2019.

Paddy Cuthbert describes the new event, “In the stunning surroundings of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, there will be open water swimming events for all ages and standards of swimmers: 250m, 750m, 1.5 km, 3 km, 5 km and 10 km options. All distances include generous cut-off times to allow for those who want to take it a bit easier.

With the support and backing of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority, Go Swim Loch Lomond will follow in the footsteps of the successful Great Scottish Swim after the popular event was cancelled earlier this year.

Paul McGreal from Durty Events said, “We’re really excited to be able to continue the tradition of fantastic swim events at Loch Lomond. We know thousands of people have enjoyed the previous races and the absence of a major swimming event this year was met with a great deal of sadness so we really wanted to create something that replicates that experience.

It’s a great fit for what we offer and believe in at Durty Events – amazing people doing amazing things in amazing places. We just love seeing people get out there, set themselves challenges, and have an adventure and Go Swim Loch Lomond certainly meets that criteria.

We’ve got a wealth of experience with open water swimming as the organizing team behind dozens of the biggest, best and award-winning triathlons in Scotland over the last 20+ years. Some of these events have had Loch Lomond as a venue and include event management for the open water swimming events at the 2018 European Championships.”

Gordon Watson, Chief Executive of Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, said, “Loch Lomond is an iconic location and a world class venue for open water swimming as demonstrated by hosting last year’s European Championships televised around the globe. We want people of all ages and abilities to continue to have the opportunity to enjoy the fantastic atmosphere and wonderful experience of a mass participation event in this special place.
