Experience a Twist on Traditional Snorkeling at the Bog Snorkeling Championship in Wales

The Experience

One of the dirtiest weekends in sports is held every August in the smallest town in Britain, Llanwrtyd Wells, population 606, and the cause is none other than the Bog Snorkeling World Championships. The racecourse is no more than a trench on the outskirts of Llanwrtyd, roughly 150 feet long and four 4 deep. Each year it draws over 100 participants from all over the world to compete for this coveted quirky championship title. To add to the hilarity, fancy dress and costumes are encouraged and rules govern against using conventional swimming strokes.
