About ÖTILLÖ Sprint Hvar
We want to share the emotions of swimrun with everyone. The purpose of the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Sprints is to create easy, interesting and fun courses as an introduction to the sport of swimrun.
These races are for those who want a new challenge, for those who want to try swimrun and also for those who want to race fast. Our sprint courses will always be between 12 – 15 km long with many short and varied sections and around 15% of swimming. There are no cut-offs as we want this to be the door in to the world of swimrun for you.
The sprint races are easy and you do not have to go fast. If you have never participated in a swimrun race before, this will be a perfect start for you. This concept also works for the experienced racer who wants to do a fast race for pace training as we have designed the course to work for everyone. As the races are the day before or the day after our ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series events it is also a way for you to be part of the whole swimrun weekend!
The winners of each category will get a free entry to an ÖTILLÖ Qualifier of choice for the following year.
The ÖTILLÖ Sprint Hvar is the perfect race to start feeling your way around swimrun or as a test race for those who are training for something bigger. You will get the feeling for the beautiful water you will experience the fantastic scents from the rosemary along the trails and you will see the beautiful views.
The purpose of this race is to have fun. Enjoy the infrastructure of an ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series event but without the massive undertaking of the big race.
The course will be about 13 km with a minimum of 4 swims. The course is protected and will start and finish on the Main square in Hvar. The longest swim is 950 metres.
