Big Bear Events : Swan Challenge

Swan Challenge

Kingsbury Water Park, Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire.


What is the Swan Challenge?

The Swan Challenge is a 6 hour running event at Kingsbury Water Park, Bodymoor Heath Ln, Sutton Coldfield B76 0DY on Wednesday 25th March 2020 at 09:00.

How far is the race?

You decide! The 3.3-mile out and back loop at Kingsbury Water Park means your race can be just over 5k or, given the flat nature of the course, potentially 50+ miles! You decide how many laps you are going to do on the day within the 6-hour time limit. If you're looking to cover a marathon distance you'll need to complete 8 laps and a half marathon will be 4 laps.

Entry Info

No entries on the day

There is an entry limit. Once the event gets down to the last places we'll endeavour to make people aware through social media and emails. Once the event is full you will be able to join the waiting list through this site.

You do have to pay to park (£4.50 at the time of writing). This money goes directly to the country parks, they are great spaces that do need money and this is their main revenue stream. That said, be a hero and car share, save money and the world!

Course map/ course description

The course route is on the above tab. You'll be able to see the type of terrain from our video of the course. In summary, it's flat. It's not quite as flat as a running track but with only around 60ft of elevation per lap 

Has the event been run before?

No! This is the inaugrual event so you can be part of a new type of event for Kingsbury Water Park from its infancy. We hope to return many times as we are super excited about this venue so why not start at the first one!

Where is it?

Kinbsbury Water Park. Use the post code B76 0DY for Sat Navs. It is very close to the M42 J9 and M6 J4 which is either great - or awful depending on the traffic!


Permission for this event has been obtained from Warwickshire County Council.
