In the past couple of years we have been looking for the ideal location for an early race and for a race in the Mediterranean. Both of these dreams came true in Croatia. We now have the great pleasure to present the Island of Hvar in Croatia as one of the new destinations for the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series.
The island is magnificient, surrounded by emerald-colored seas and the exceptional Paklinski islands to the south. Hvar is known to be one of the most beautiful islands in the world.
Rosemary, lavender, wine, more than a 2000-year old history; just simply, a unique place for a unique race.
The first World Series race of the 2017 season will be hosted on the 2nd of April with an ÖTILLÖ Sprint the day before,on April 1st.
