ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Merit Races

In all ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Merit races you collect points towards the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun ranking system. Every year we will select teams to ÖTILLÖ, The Swimrun World Championship based on ranking in the end of the year. Only teams with ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Ranking points will be able to participate in the ÖTILLÖ Random Ticket Selection.

All the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Merit races are covered in your ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Insurance so that you can be reimbursed if you cannot attend the race due to medical reasons. It is of course also an accident and liability insurance.
