This is a time of year that we love and hate. We get to read all the fantastic applications for The ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship and we can start ”seeing” the field of racers that will tackle the beast of a course that ÖTILLÖ is.
However, selecting teams for the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship 2017 is brutal. With several hundreds of teams applying via Merits based on www.otilloswimrun.com/ranking and also via Director’s choice based on other merits.
We have a great number of very good teams that have applied with some awesome women teams. This has made us add more women teams than before and made fewer men teams. In total we will have 25 women teams, 38 mixed, 53 men and 4 sponsor teams t b d. The competition will be fierce.
The ÖTILLÖ Ranking system is brutally honest… In 2017 we suggest you make sure to race in races that generate ÖTILLÖ Ranking points and that you make sure to collect them.
The only way into the 2017 ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship is now via qualification at the races in Hvar, Utö, Isles of Scilly and Engadin and also via the Random ticket selection which will be hosted on Thursday, January 26th, in Stockholm at 18:30 CET, the drawing will be made at 19:30 CET. See the facebook event on www.facebook.com/otillorace Please join us for an ÖTILLÖ beer and some excitement!
The drawing will be sent LIVE on the facebook page as well.
