Events

The club has two annual meets, starting with the 360 Marina 5k in March and followed by the Edinburgh University Hare & Hounds hosted Braids Hill XC in November.

360 Marina 5k

Since the foundation on the 360 Marina 5k in 2013 the event has continued to grow in popularity on an annual basis and has becoming a staple of the running calendar in Swansea. The event is always well attended by members and is a great chance to compete with the crusties and for the Seapigs to return to Swansea. We are kindly hosted by the students for the weekend, meet-up in the Uplands Tavern on a Friday, take on the race Saturday morning and return to our old stomping grounds in Wind Street in the evening.

Edinburgh Braids Hill XC

Swansea University has been taking a cross country team to Edinburgh since the early 90’s and we have managed to continue the tradition ever since despite the colossal and agonising bus journey. Since the formation of the Trotters in 2012 Swansea has also been represented in Edinburgh by the Seapigs; making our own traditions we now set up camp in asbestos filled hostels, don our baby blue vests and best the crusites in boatraces, spittling like Tripe H and beersock drinking.
