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 only accepted athletes who competed in the 2017 event, and qualified 2017 race volunteers, and on December 1, 2017 we accepted general applications for the race. But the 2018 event filled up even faster than in 2017 despite us allowing 111 teams to register. We were at capacity on January 26, 2018 and thus started a wait list. It is actually worthwhile to get on that list - last year 10 teams got in from the wait list.

There is no cost to apply for a spot on the wait list, but once you are accepted you will have to pay $375 for the team to fully register.
