Course Records Fall at ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship

The top swimrun athletes in the world gathered on Sept. 3 for the 13th running of the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship—one of the toughest one-day endurance events on the planet. Overall, 160 two-person teams (made up of male, female, or mixed) competed over 24 islands with 50 changes between swimming and running.

Conditions were ideal for a fast day on the 75 km long race course in the Stockholm archipelago, but no one could predict that the course records would fall in every category.
