We feel that we are very fortunate to be able to swim and run through beautiful nature. That is why it is important to us to make sustainable events and act with responsibility. We want to leave as small of a footprint as possible, we want to be a force of good when it comes to taking care of our environment. Therefore, we donate money to a local environmental organisation in each race location. To contribute to our nature.
It is also a major luxury to feel safe and healthy in a world where many do not. Just before ÖTILLÖ, The Swimrun World Championship 2015 we initiated a call to action together with Jonas Colting and Ulf Jonsson, we call it #Swimrunforlife.
#Swimrunforlife is an initiative where we want to give back to those less fortunate, who chase the dream of freedom and safety. Who risk their lives over land and water to find shelter. We are currently donating money to www.lighthouserelief.org for their work on Lesvos and we encourage you to do the same.
In the future we want #Swimrunforlife to be a good force in society; both far away and close to home.
