Åland Swimrun 13.-14.9.2019
In the middle of September 2019 it´s again time for Åland Swimrun!
The LONG-distance is back and has as before the distances SHORT and Supersprint as company.
Long is a real force test of 51 km in the tough, outer Åland archipelago. Short is about 15km in a slightly lighter terrain but still nothing for the beginner! Supersprint is the short (3.5km) and beginner-friendly route suitable for those who wants to try swimrun, for younger participants (no lower age limit) or as a family-distance. Supersprint is also suitable as a warm up race for those participating in Saturday’s Long or Short – distance.
Åland Swimrun shall from the start be “tough enough” – both for the experienced athlete but also for the curious exerciser.
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.
The website is being updated and the registration for 2019 will open on 10.1.2019 at. 6 pm
