ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Weekend 1000 Lakes

The place to be in the autumn
September 29th-30th, 2018

After spending more than a year trying to find the ideal location in Germany we finally found the Mecklenburger Seenplatte, the land of 1000 lakes. This region is just 70 km from Berlin and so different than anything we expected. We are so proud of ÖTILLÖ 1000 Lakes.

About the ÖTILLÖ swimrun weekend

This race course is fast and spectacular! Not only do you need to be able to move fast along never-ending forest trails, you also need to be strong in the water with many swim sections and almost 25% swimming. The water is usually calm and flat so think of it as a giant pool. 11 swim sections means lots of transitions, be fast in and out of water to gain time. Get ready to embark on a new adventure, through mystical forests and in untouched lakes. Get ready for a wild race!

The course

This race course is mystical, almost as if you are in a tunnel. A tough start in Wesenberg will bring you to pristine lakes and wild forest trails. You will pass places which feel like you are in the 20s and you will swim through amazing waterways. In the forests most of the ground is hard-packed sand and the trails are very clear, it will be fast running! We love almost straight line race courses.

We have decided to increase the amount of open-water swimming in our races and here you will all be put to test, almost 18% of swimming in magical lakes. The course will have 10 swims, totaling 7,5 kilometres; of which the longest swim will be around 1 300 metres. You need to have your transitions dialed, if you are not fast there you will lose lots of time going in and out of the water.

The winning time will be around 4 ½ hours. We will have two cut-off for safety reasons and the longest time on the course will be 8 hours. Your team needs to be strong in the water and fast on land.

The total distance is 41,4 km. There will of course, be plenty of safety, energy stations in cool places and medical staff on call.
