SwimRun is a unique and fast growing sport that is driven by passionate folks who enjoy being challenged by nature and being close to it. Most of these SwimRun events take place in Northern Europe where there are now around 100 such races, and all of them have their own distinctive flavor, with race distances also varying greatly from event to event. The land and water dictates the race distance and the segments, it does not go the other way around.

It all began in Sweden in 2002 with a bet and has turned into the now famous and very tough Island to Island (ÖTILLÖ) race, where teams of 2 (dependent on each other) run across an island, swim to the next one, run across that island, and swim again etc etc. ÖTILLÖ is now the World Championship event with 65km of running and 10km of swimming spread out over 20 islands. Currently in North America there are only a few events that are inspired by ÖTILLÖ, including but not limited to the Casco Bay SwimRun USA race and our SwimRun NC at Hanging Rock, NC. For inspiration please check out these <a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/12185410@N02/with/38027387906/">great images</a> from our 2017 event.

As a new race registrant team you are however only applying for one of the spots and can't fully register at this time. You have to list your athletic accomplishments from the previous 24 months (plus those of your team mate) and we (SwimRun NC organization team) will look at each application closely before allowing teams to fully register.

Accepted teams will then be sent a registration link to complete the registration and that is when you will be charged the $375 entry fee for the team.
