By entering the race each team member accepts the rules in full. Make sure you read and understand them.

The registration process is made via ranking points, Director’s choice, the 7/24 concept or via a random selection ticket drawing. The teams selected are final and will not be discussed why they have been selected. The order the random selection tickets are bought will also be the order of an eventual waiting list. For ranking the waiting list is based on ranking points.

To be able to register for ranking applications and for Random Team selection you need to have a Swimrun ID. You can register by clicking this link.

Teams that Qualify via our Qualifiers are the first teams in each category where NO ONE in the team already has a spot. If the spot is not accepted within one (1) week it will roll down to the next team with the same criteria.

You cannot change class (men, women or mixed) after you have recieved a spot, you can change one team member. This applies if you have gotten your spot via a Qualifier, via 7/24 concept, via ranking points, via directors choice or via Random Selection Tickets.

We are very grateful for the huge demand we have for ÖTILLÖ. We therefore, try to be as fair as possible in the entry process.
