A new race has been announced in USA. The Casco Bay Islands swimrun will take place in the golf of Maine on the North-East coast, near Portland. This inlet of the Maine river features 136 islands and it’s a very natural setting for swimrunning. The provisional distances are 17.7km running and 6.3km swimming for a total of 24km. 100 teams will take part in this inaugural race on 14th August 2016. This looks like a classic in the making.
