As Swimrun has rapidly evolved over the past 15 years, it has become a general consensus that the larger the pull buoy, the better. In fact, it is such an advantage that many of the big race organizers, including ÖTILLÖ, Ödyssey Swimrun, and Breca Swimrun, all limit the size of . Ötillö Swimrun. Swimrun is young, slightly crazy and booming. The activity involves running in a wet suit and swimming in trainers. “Ten minutes to go till the start.” The race director addresses the assembled competitors through a megaphone: about men and women are bustling excitedly around the starting area. They squeeze into wet. Zu zweit kann man sich gegenseitig helfen, wenn einer zum Beispiel einen Muskelkrampf bekommt.

But in short, if you want to be part of our race there is nothing to do at this time. The SwimRun NC at Hanging Rock is the concept of Jan Kriska and Jeff Beckelhimer, two passionate endurance athletes who reside very close to this stunning part of nature, and have spent countless times running or swimming there.
They invited Herbert Krabel to join them as he shares that unique event passion. Kriska, Krabel and Beckelhimer have participated in endurance events all over the globe and Beckelhimer is also a smart and experienced race event director.
On October 24th, you can enjoy the magic and challenge of about 16 miles of running and 3k of swimming broken up into 11 runs and 9 swims, plus a lot of elevation gain for some added fun.
But this is race for very experienced and fit endurance athletes and should not be taken lightly. The event will be the fifth edition, and this race is a non-profit event.
SwimRun is a unique and fast growing sport that is driven by passionate folks who enjoy being challenged by nature and being close to it.
Most of these SwimRun events take place in Northern Europe where there are now around such races, and all of them have their own distinctive flavor, with race distances also varying greatly from event to event.
The land and water dictates the race distance and the segments, it does not go the other way around. It all began in Sweden in with a bet and has turned into the now famous and very tough Island to Island ÖTILLÖ race, where teams of 2 dependent on each other run across an island, swim to the next one, run across that island, and swim again etc etc.
Plus there are several other SwimRun races in North America. The Green Heron Alehouse in Danbury, NC will be the site for the start and finish, package pickup and all related activities.
The actual events themselves are held outside of the Alehouse and that includes package pickup etc, but you can have delicious beer within.
We of course could not run such an event without great partners and we are thrilled to present them here. SwimRun races are team events with 2 athletes per starting team, and these teams can be either all male, all female or gender mixed.
Athletes on the same team have to be within 10 meters of each other at all times, and they are allowed and encouraged to help each other.
Typically teams swim with the running shoes on their feet, and run while still wearing the wetsuits.
With so many transitions in SwimRun events, it makes no sense to get undressed and dressed over and over again. Pull buoys, tethers and paddles are legal in these events, but when used must be carried from start to finish.
Other equipment is mandatory and you can read the detailed rules and regulations below. A SwimRun participants acknowledge and understand that a SwimRun endurance event is comprised of multiple and alternating transits of varied terrain and open water swims may present unique and unexpected hazards outside the control of race organizers, local governments and private property owners whose property the course may utilize.
A The race course will consist of alternating trail running routes and swim legs in the lake at Hanging Rock State Park and the Dan River.
All without any breaks along the way: this is probably the toughest test of endurance that the Engadin has to offer.
Michael, who is a head taller than most of the competitors, acts as a calming influence at the heart of the increasingly edgy Swimrunners.
He then gives the starting signal: people in wet suits and colourful caps race off, running along footpaths up the valley. A few hikers watch the scene and clap.
In contrast to other endurance contests, Swimrun involves teams of two. Throughout the race, the two members of each team may never be more than 10 metres apart, and during the swim sections they must be joined by a rope.
One reason is safety: two team members can help each other, for example if one gets cramp. In the swimming sections, especially, it is important to pay careful attention to each other, says Michael.
Four friends were sitting together in a hotel bar drinking a beer. They wondered whether it would be possible to go from the island of Utö to Sandhamn, where one of the four ran a hotel, purely by swimming and running, without assistance: a distance of about 75 kilometres, no mean feat.
The same evening they decided on the route, which leads over 26 islands, and set the rules: competitors would have refreshments at three restaurants along the course, and the losers of the race would pay the bills.
The next morning, they set off in teams of two; it took them more than 24 hours to complete the route. Swimrun was born. Two of the four friends, Michael Lemmel and Mats Skott, developed the personal challenge into a professionally run contest.
The pair subsequently decided to turn Ötillö into a world championship, adding qualifying races at other locations.
The Engadin, with its high mountains, lush forests and sparkling lakes, scattered along the valley like pearls on a necklace, is the most soughtafter destination.
The organisers were lucky: the weather was perfect, pictures of the event went around the world and sparked international excitement for Swimrunning.
In the Engadin mountains, we run from lake to lake. The popularity of Swimrun really took off with the introduction of additional shorter distances.
Ötillö Engadin also features a Sprint Race This reality has led to some pretty cool innovations that are competing for the title of best setup.
Most of these were DIY jobs before companies started selling them with strategically placed holes or straps for mounting, but the DIY culture is still alive and well and is on display at every event.
We would even go so far as to say that DIY-ing your Swimrun pull buoy is a rite of passage that all Swimrunners should go through.
In general, there are several popular mount styles that Swimrunners have devised to carry their pull buoys during run legs. Another popular mount is the back or lasso mount where the pull buoy is attached to a cord tied around the waist, and an athlete tucks it to their lower back during run legs and swings it around between their legs for swim legs.
Whatever you stumble upon that works for you is totally cool. Until next time, take a moment to appreciate the pull buoys in your swim bag.
