ÖTILLÖ Discussion forum

Feb 15, 2017

ÖTILLÖ 2016

Since we started ÖTILLÖ and swimrun in 2006 racers, friends, family and others interested in what we are doing have been looking for a plattform where they and we can communicate.

As the sport continues to grow many people want to race, to find races and to discuss travel, locations and equipment. Because of all these reasons we have created the ÖTILLÖ Discussion forum so that you can talk with each other and with us. The more of us that register there, the easier it will be to find race partners, to find the right gear and to be among friends.

Our sport is still small so it can feel lonely out there. But, if you consider that there are probably about 40 000 individuals racing in 2017 then there is probably another 40 000 at least that are curious of what is going on and want to take part of all your knowledge and your ideas.

If our community becomes stronger and bigger then more opportunities will be available for everyone and we together can have a real voice in the endurance world. Until date we have about 400 persons registered in a completely open forum based around swimrun, not only ÖTILLÖ. So, go to the Discussion forum, register and become an advocate for the sport and part of building the future.

In 10 years time we might all be able to say that we were there at the beginning of the sport!

Swimrun Life #5 2017 – A word from the editor

I find myself waking up extra early on Sunday mornings with the anticipation of a blissfully long swimrun training day ahead of me. Instead, I put on an ÖTILLÖ cap and stare fondly at my paddles with this year’s race distances scribbled across them. Race days are not all I’m yearning for. It’s the people, the ÖTILLÖ community that I miss.

2017 Ranking Leaders: Consistency puts you on top!

In 2016, we started a Ranking System that we could be as fair as possible when awarding spots to the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship. Before this method, we had to try to sift through hundreds of applications and go with our gut feeling. Now we can finally see its full effect.
