Description

Experience the magic and challenge of 14 miles of running and 3 km of swimming broken up into 11 technical trail runs and 9 cold swims at Hanging Rock State Park in NC - in teams of two. SwimRun NC also offers stunning scenery, challenging waterfalls and a good amount of elevation gain and this very vertical SwimRun event is an ÖTILLÖ merit race. SwimRun NC is an event for very experienced and fit endurance athletes and should not be taken lightly. We in fact screen teams before we allow them into the race. This is extremely difficult terrain and could possibly take place in very challenging conditions. This is not an individual event and teams of two can be either male/male, male/female or female/female and wetsuits in this race are mandatory. Fantastic images from the 2017 event can be found here and here to give you a better impression what to expect.

For the 2018 race we initially will only accept athletes who competed in the 2017 event, and qualified 2017 race volunteers. On December 1, 2017 we will start to accept general applications for the 2018 event. In that application process where no money is charged, teams need to convince us of their merit with athletic details from the past 24 months. Ideally with exact dates and times of events. Teams can also explain in essay form why the past 24 months may not properly explain their merit. Once we review those applications we will send out a registration link to the accepted teams. At that time the $375 entry fee per team is due.

It is not first come, first serve, it is a rolling team acceptance. We screen teams when they apply and let them know if we think that they have what it takes, and they can then fully register to be officially in. The 2017 race was filled by the end of January 2017, and we think the 2018 race will likely fill equally fast. We will allow 111 teams to register for 2018 but the runsignup site will show it as individuals - thus 222. But that still means 111 teams. Whatever your path may be, we hope to see you on the start line on October 28, 2018.
