Wild swimming has produced a boom in books, merchandise and big group events like the one coming up in 2021.
On 26th June 2021 you can join a wild swimming event like no other in Wales.
Hosted by the Outdoor Swimming Society, the Bwrlwm Bermo Hurly Burly is fun, messy and involves a 10km run and swim.
The Society says: “This swim is heavily tide-assisted, and it takes swimmers around 75-150 minutes to complete the 10k course as a result. The degree of challenge in this swim depends very much on the weather on the day. On a sunny clear day, the sandy bottomed estuary can look like the Mediterranean. On a bad weather day, with choppy water and a headwind, it tends towards what one swimmer called ‘messy, brutal and brilliant.”
