Bellingham Swimrun

What is Swimrun?
Swimrun is a sport that was born in the archipelagos of Sweden in the 2006.  Since its inception, the sport has grown rapidly and now has a world series with the World Championships held every September in Sweden.  

Otillo, the creators of Swimrun describe it this way…

“The team alternates between running and swimming along a pre-marked course in nature; it can be between islands or between lakes. As a team you share the experience, the fun, the beauty and the suffering. Swimrun is emotion!”
