23.9.2017 is it time to race again -welcome to join!
Both the LONG and Sprint distance from last year will be in the race also in 2017, the Sprint-distance will now be called SHORT.
New for 2017 is that Open Finnish Championship in Swimrun will be held on the LONG-distance. New is also the shorter and beginner-friendly route, SUPERSPRINT, for those who want to try the sport and maybe even bring the family´s a little older kids!
With an archipelago consisting of 6757 islands and a water area of 11990 square kilometers the conditions are the best for arranging a unique swimrun- event. We ensure our participants an experience that will not soon be forgotten! Nature in these areas of the archipelago alternates from isles with forests, barren and windswept skerries and granite outcrops polished smooth by the mighty and roaring sea. With the route partly along the west side of the outer islands towards the open sea and with Sweden as the next neighbor the race will be a tough challenge – how tough it will be depends on the weather.
Åland Swimrun shall from the start be “tough enough” – both for the experienced athlete but also for the curious exerciser.
You can choose between Long that is a real challenge of approximately 51km in the tough, outer archipelago, Short that involves approximately 15km in a slightly easier terrain but still nothing for beginners and Supersprint that is “super easy” and is suitable for those who want to test swimrun
