Highly ranked among the top eccentric British events. Who snorkels the fastest through a swampy ditch in a crazy outfit:The World Bog Snorkeling Championship (yes, a World Cup). In this events swimmers snorkel and run through the murky, muddy water of a ditch near Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales.
Wearing a wet suite is allowed, regular swimming movements are not allowed! The aim of the competition is to clear your way as quickly as possible through a 55 meter long swamp. A small advantage for the participants: the event takes place on the August Bank Holiday (1st Monday of August), so the water is slightly warmer than the rest of the year.
