What is Swimrun?

History


SwimRun was started by Utö hotel owner Anders Malm and two brothers in his staff in 2002 with the idea of challenging each other in the Stockholm archipelago where the participants were going to finish the course of getting themselves from Sandhamn to Utö. In 2006 this idea was launched as an official competition called Ö till ö (Island to island).

Today


The international focus has been growing in the last years, and in 2016 there are more than 180 known races in the world, in 19 countries and on 4 continents. Today it's going to be 20 countries. Swimrun Trakai is the first swimrun in Lithuania.

Courses


Swimrun participants negotiate marked courses consisting of alternating phases of trail running and open water swimming. There can be anywhere from several to as many as 30 stages on the courses.

How to participate?


SwimRun competitions have no limits or standards apart from having to compete in twos in Black and Red courses. So a partner is required. There is also a requirement to be able to run and swim in the open water as long as you need for the selected distance. During the competition participants are allowed to use fins, paddles, buoys, wetsuits and other swimming equipment. However, it all has to be carried by the participants themselves during the length of the course.
