Uncharted Territory

“It’s still really new. We just want to show the activity to others and create community—but there are more than 1,000 swimrun events everywhere now.”

The Lowdown

“Swimrun allows you to go places you’ve never been. Go for a run. When you arrive at a lake or the ocean, swim a bit, when you exit, keep running. Repeat.”

A Team Effort

“The real spirit is to compete with a partner using a towline. We also use pull buoys, since we’re swimming with shoes and sometimes hand paddles.”
