WHAT IS IT?
SWIMRUN is an exciting new sport sweeping the world; with a hint of adventure racing and flair of the multi-sport similar to a triathlon. Steeped in Swedish legend and solid foundation, as with all great sports, based on a drunken bar bet. You race in 2 person teams required to race together. You are challenged with a mix of alternating running and swimming legs. You are required to start and finish the race with all your gear, whatever you choose. Our sprint SWIMRUN will consist of 7 legs of running and swimming with 10.3 km (6.4 mi) of total racing distance.
For 2019 we have a $1,500 prize purse for this event. $500 will be awarded to the fastest overall teams in the All Male, All Female & Mixed category.
Male Team, Female Team and Mixed Team winners will all receive a qualifying entry into the
