This unique ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship race will be first ever held in the UK.  100 teams of two from Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, The Netherlands and Germany will be chasing the 8 qualification spots for the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship on 5th September.

The ÖTILLÖ race will be a true test for the teams of two that will tackle a course close to 45km long with a minimum of eight swims. The open-water swim sections will total around 10km with 35 kilometres of trail running and scrambling in between, across St. Mary’s, Tresco, St. Martin’s and Bryher.  The Swimrun World Championship race is ranked by media broadcaster CNN as “one of the toughest endurance races in the world”.
