“Swimrun is the fastest growing sport in the world. You participate in teams of two, alternating between trail running and open water swimming along a marked course.”

Two multisport veterans looking for the next adventure were inspired by the preeminent, international swimrun race ÖTILLÖ (“island to island” in Swedish). Entering our fourth year, Ödyssey SwimRun is pleased to once again present in 2019 the only island-to-island-style races in North America!

Remaining true to the originators of ÖTILLÖ, the two-person team event is our flagship format. Not a relay, teammates must race the entire course together. Rules permit swim aids such as hand paddles, pull buoys, wetsuits and even swim fins to name a few. Certain safety gear is mandated by race rules and hydration and race fuel can be carried too, but what one starts with, so too must they finish. Changing from trail shoes to swim fins, or tending to awkward gear can chew up valuable time. Having the right teammate and equipment can make all the difference.
