ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Weekend UtöWelcome to the birth place of Swimrun!
The start of the Swedish Swimrun season and a tribute to the origin of the sport. Utö and its surrounding islands will provide the scene for two beautiful races along magical trails and beautiful open-water swims.
The running is mostly trail running and the sections are very varied. They are on dirt roads, single tracks, cliffs and rocks, completely off-road and with some challenging short, steep sections to climb. Those who will manage the whole course will have a magical experience.
The open water swim sections are many, most of them are relatively short. You will find out quickly if you are good at transitions. Some Swims are protected and some are very exposed. Prepare for some rock n roll swimming.
A total distance of 12 km, with 8 runs and 7 swims. No swim will be longer than 430 metres and all swims are protected. The runs are beautiful; some on trail, some on rocks and some with a lot of people around.
The sprint race is the day before ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Utö and it is a way for you to be part of the whole swimrun weekend! The winners of each team category will get a free entry to an ÖTILLÖ Qualifier of choice for the following year.
