ÖTILLÖ is the race that started the sport of Swimrun.

The idea behind ÖTILLö was conceived in 2003 during a late night bet at Utö Värdshus on the island of Utö in the Stockholm Archipelago. The bet was between the friends Anders Malm, Janne Lindberg, Jesper Mars and Mats Andersson.

Utö Swimrun Trail

Since a few years back there is a yellow/blue marked trail around the North end of Utö. From the summer of 2021 there are now seven (6) swim sections marked along the same trail. The course is a total of 12,2 km long of which 1850 metres are swimming. The first and last swims are the longest at 455 metres each. The swims are protected and safe in all weather conditions.
