Mad Hatter Sports Events was started in July 2014 by three keen athletes who have competed in events both in the UK and Europe. We felt that a large number of these events weren’t good value for money and really didn’t leave us wanting more. We wanted quality events with a fun atmosphere that still provided a challenge. We believe that we can organise events that give all of these factors and a few more that we have discovered along the way.
After an enormous amount of hard work and planning we held the first Pentewan 2k Sea Swim on 28th September 2014. We had 62 enthusiastic participants of varying ages and abilities from all over the UK. Since, we have delivered two 5 event Sea Swim Series. Participants received an event t-shirt and a medal at each swim. Prizes were awarded to male and female winners of different age categories, including non-wetsuit. A presentation evening was held at the end of the series to celebrate achievements. In October 2015, we organised the South Wests' first ever Swimrun event called the Hokey Cokey, which saw 50+ competitors from across England run and swim around St Austell Bay. The event has developed and competitor numbers have continued to grow and has proved to be a huge success and well worth the trip down to Kernow from all across the UK and Europe.
2017 saw another successful season with a new event partnership team of Polkerris Beach Company. New events and formats were introduced and we look forward to working together for many years to come.
