Pub2Pub Aquathon – The Smugglers’ Revenge – Kingsbridge

This is the 7th Pub2Pub Aquathon event which will take place on Saturday 22 August 2020 at 6pm (time to be confirmed).

The Pub2Pub Aquathon event involves a 2.5km swim from the Pilchard Inn, Burgh Island with the (very fast) stream to The Quay, Bantham.  Followed by a short sharp run/walk up the hill to The Sloop Inn where there will be beer and a free pasty!

Individual prizes are awarded and also a prize for the best village (most points earned).  The villages are: Bantham, West Buckland, Thurlestone and Rest of the World.

See for more information, final race instructions including confirmation of start time (expected to be 6pm) will be sent by email to participants.

Spectator tickets are on sale at Eventbrite:

All proceeds will be split between Bantham Surf Life Saving Club and Bantham Sailing Club Learn to Sail Scheme.

How to Enrol:

FYI on entry: If the ‘Rest of the World Tickets’ sell out (which can happen very fast!) that doesn’t mean others can’t enter, it just means you have to chose one of the local villages to represent.

  • All participants must be able to swim 2km in 50 minutes (or less).
  • Entry is limited to over 18s only, but competent under 18s accompanied by a parent will be accepted by special arrangement.
