What you need to know about Swimrun

What started out as a drunken bet between two friends in Sweden is fast becoming one of the more popular multi-sport racing events. Swimruns are always carried out outdoors and in open water where your goal is to go from a start to finish through a course with several checkpoints. It has several stages, which means you have to switch between running and swimming several times.

You enter as a two person team, and usually you have to be within 10m of each other for the whole race. Some people tie themselves together to make sure they don’t drift during the swim. The original ÖTILLÖ in Stockholm is regarded as one of the toughest adventure races around, but as the sport grows there are events suitable for newbies as well as hardened endurance athletes. We’ve created a list of our favourites, from swimruns in Wales, Cumbria, Scotland and the Scilly Isles, you’re sure to find an adventure that suits.
