TenFoot Swim


The TenFoot Swim is an event in which competitors complete a 5km sea swimming course from Tenby’s North beach to Saundersfoot’s main beach.

The next 5km TenFoot Swim will take place along the stunning Pembrokeshire coastline on Saturday 3rd July 2021. It will be the 4th annual TenFoot Swim.

Course Details

Swimmers will enter the water from North Beach (Tenby) then swim to Monkstone Beach (half way point) where they will leave the water for a mandatory safety check and much needed feed station.

On completion of the safety check, all swimmers will enter the water and swim through the ‘rocky’ gap at Monkstone Point (which will be marshalled by the organiser’s safety kayakers), then track the stunning Pembrokeshire Coastline to Swallow Tree, The Glen, and to finally finish on Saundersfoot’s main beach where a great party atmosphere will be waiting.

The organisers will provide a service to transfer personal belongings from Tenby to Saundersfoot, but entrants are required to make their own arrangements for the return journey, back to Tenby.

See our news tab for a map of the course.

Safety Details

For safety reasons there is a 2-hour cut-off time for swimmers to reach the check point at Monkstone Beach.

The wearing of a wet suit and swim buoy are compulsory, and all swimmers MUST provide both to take part in the swim.
