About ÖTILLÖ Swimrun weekend Cannes

Welcome to one of the most well-known cities in Europe. Cannes is where movie stars meet for the yearly film festival and now where swimrunner will meet for a yearly swimrun festival. ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Cannes is the final race of ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series 2018. Points from both races counts as World series points if you finish the World series race in Cannes.

For the first time we are making a course in an urban environment but do not be fooled. The course is a true ÖTILLÖ course with islands to cross and lots of fantastic nature.

The course will be challenging and fun with two big hills, single track trails amazing views and beautiful water to swim in.

The start will be inside the walls of the fort on the island of Sainte- Marguerite. Out of the gates you will run a loop to the East along a beautiful trail to a swim to the Monastery island of Ile Saint-Honorat with paradise-like surroundings. After running around this magical island with beautiful vineyards and architecture you will do the crystal-clear swim back to the island of Ile Sainte-Marguerite. There another pristine run before a longer swim that takes you to the famous Croisette before climbing a big hill and a run trough the old town. An abandoned train track will bring you to the top of another big hill with massive houses before finishing down in beautiful Cannes again.

A total of 37,2 kms of which 28,5 are running and 8,7 are swimming. A total of 9 swims. Welcome to a very special weekend!
