Whether you are a competing athlete, or are looking for a fun and relaxed way to get involved in sport, we have a range of different race and competition categories, making Swansea Special Festival suitable for all.

10 July – Swimming competition, Wales National Pool

11 July – Athletics competition, Swansea University International Sports Village

There are also plenty of opportunities to socialise both on and off the running track, with a variety of entertainment in the evenings of 9, 10 and 11 July, including 10-pin bowling, a live music act and a karaoke evening!

As this event is inclusive for people with physical, learning and intellectual disabilities, we categorise races into ability levels, meaning everyone has a fair chance of winning a medal. We accept entries from both adults and children, and we take great pride in ensuring there is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere at all events and activities.

All competition participants will receive a printed certificate, and there will be medals for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in every event.
