Join us for the SwimRun NC 2022 and make sure to bring your A game and an amazing attitude. We only accept teams of 2 for our race as participating in a team of 2 is actually more than twice the fun. But be sure to be ready for challenging trails, brisk swims and a very memorable experience.
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 several events inspired by ÖTILLÖ but not all events are created equal.
At this time there is an entry fee of $475 due.
