About this event

A 2.5km swim from the Pilchard Inn, Burgh Island on the incoming tide 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 !

There are individual prizes, and also a prize for the best village (most points earned).  Villages are - Bantham, West Buckland, Thurlestone and Rest of the World.  Entry limited to over 18s only.

New for this year - Veterans' category, open to those Pub2Pubbers lucky enough to be over 50

UPDATE RoW tickets are sold out but don't let this stop you entering ! simply chose a village to represent, Ruth lives in Buckland, Patrick holidays in Bantham and Thurlestone has the rock

See for more information,  final race instructions including confirmation of start location and time (expected to be 4.45 pm) will be sent by email.

All profits will be split between Bantham Surf Lifesaving Club and Bantham Sailing Club's Learn to Sail Scheme

All participants must be able to swim 2km in 50 minutes (or less), if a swimmer falls too far behind the main group we reserve the right to remove that swimmer from the water to ensure everyone's safety

Previous Pub2Pubbers will have noticed that this year's entry fee is higher than in previous years. We are sorry about this but sadly have had to raise the entry fee to cover the cost of safety cover which in the past was zero but is now a significant sum because we have had to use a lifeguard company rather than relying solely upon qualified volunteers. We do however have many unpaid volunteers doing a lot of the tasks, including some of the lifeguarding.

Proudly sponsored by Wollens and The Sloop, Bantham
