"Bog Snorkelling Championship" Wales Things to Do Tip by lomi
Wales Things to Do: 372 reviews and 875 photos
If you like surprises, you'll enjoy Bog Snorkelling competitions. They have been held in Mid Wales since 1985. Competitors have to complete two consecutive lengths of a 60-yard (55 m) water filled trench cut through a peat bog. Oh and in the shortest time possible!
This is genuine, I'm not kidding. Go and see for yourself.
It is what I like about the Welsh, their capacity for fun in the most extreme circumstances.
Competitors wear snorkels and flippers and complete the course without using conventional swimming strokes, relying on flipper power. Wet suits are not compulsory.
Dates: August Bank Holiday every year.
If you want even more fun, see my tip for mountain bike bog snorkelling!
Address: Waen Rhydd peat bog
