The Isles of Scilly is the ultimate swimrun destination and on the 8th & 9th June, we welcome back the OTILLO World Series for a fourth year. There is also a family friendly junior swim run event on Friday 7th June at 2-5pm, starting from Holgates Green. For more information on this, take a look at the facebook page.

Saturday 8th:  Will see a “Sprint Race” around the perimeter of St. Mary’s swimming across the bays and running the island’s coastline. Over 80 teams of two are expected to take part.

The race starts from Holgate’s Green at 9.00am with the finishers expected back between 10.30am  and 13.15pm.

There will also be an experience race starting and finishing at Holgates Green with a 9:30am start, a much shorter taster course for budding athletes to try it out.

Sunday 9th: The main race of ÖTILLÖ 2019 will start at 10am from Holgate’s Green, Hugh Town. Come and see the spectacle as more than 200 athletes line up at the start and begin their 37.5km adventure race.

The race follows a clockwise route around the islands taking in Tresco, Bryher, Tresco again, Northwethel, Tean, St. Martin’s and back to St. Mary’s. A total of 29km of running and 8km of sea swimming.

Stick around on Holgate’s Green on the 8th and 9th, as from 11am-2pm on Saturday and 3pm-6pm on Sunday there will be a BBQ from Tanglewood Kitchen. There will also be a public bar in the marquee, a live leaderboard and feed of the race, plus commentary as the race reaches its closing stages.

The top teams are expected back at the finish line (Holgate’s Green) from around 2.30pm, with the last teams finishing by 6pm. Come along and cheer the racers across the line. Refreshments available on Holgate's Green.
