Description

Experience the magic and challenge of 15 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 2018 event can be found here and here to give you a better impression what to expect. We think great race photography is super important, and we always provide our starting athletes with amazing pictures.

We opened the general application for spots into our race on December 1, 2018 and as of January 9, 2019 we have 92 teams fully registered. We will allow a total of 123 teams, but this is a very tough race and is not meant for everyone. We want to see road half marathon speeds sub 2 hours, and Half Ironman times sub 6 hours for example, plus teams ideally have technical trail running experience. This is not about elitism but about athlete safety. So if you think you have what it takes, apply and we promise you an amazing experience. 

But please do not send us Facebook messages to inquire about the status. We will let you know. Once the race is full we will accept folks to get on the wait list, and at least the top 12-15 teams on the wait list can feel pretty hopeful to get in officially. 

There is no cost to apply for a spot in our race, but once you are accepted you will have to pay $400 for the team to fully register.
