Scilly60 Events

Providing adventurous inter-island sporting events within the archipelago of Scilly.

About Scilly60 Events

Scilly60 started with the ultra marathon trail race in 2023. It has now evolved into providing many adventurous inter-island sporting events within the beautiful Isles of Scilly archipelago.

Scilly60 was created and is run by Wez Swain. Wez is an outdoors enthusiast and enjoys many adventurous activities. Whether it be Running, Climbing, Kayaking, Open Water Swimming or Cycling; Wez loves to share his passions with others. 

He has competed in the World Swimrun Championships in 2017 & 2022. He has completed the 100mile Arc of Attrition, walked the 630mile South West Coast Path and is just putting the finishing touches to a rock climbing guidebook for the Isles of Scilly.

In April, he became the first person to swim from St Agnes to Bishop Rock Lighthouse.



In 2024, we’re bringing back the Original Scilly 60 race, as well as three new events:

The Fun Run – a 40km version with friendlier cut-offs,

The Tide Race – a half marathon between two islands – don’t miss the tide!

Scilly Swimrun – bringing Swimrun back to Scilly with five events over 4 days for all abilities

W3W – A free community event. Runners look for 3 checkpoints using  what3words.  

There are also more idea’s in the pipeline so check back soon for more updates of new and exciting adventure races.
