A handful of miles outside of downtown Boston lies the Boston Harbor Islands which served as the race venue for the first running of Odyssey SwimRun Boston Harbor Islands on Saturday, July 13.

SwimRun events typically have smaller field sizes than triathlons, in part because courses and conditions can be very demanding, equal parts adventure and endurance race. The Odyssey SwimRun Boston Harbor Islands course ran over five islands and swam between four islands for a total distance of 3.25 miles of rough open water swimming and 12 miles of mixed overland running. Enjoy these photos, and get to dreaming! Odyssey SwimRun produces three more events in 2019, including Casco Bay Islands, Maine (Aug. 11), Les Cheneaux Islands, Michigan (Sept. 8), and Orcas Island, Washington (Sept. 22).
