On September the 24th, Canada saw its 1st swimrun race take place. This sprint swimrun race, The Amphibious Challenge, located at the Ottawa river in Sheenboro, Quebec, stretched 15 km long with 12 km of running and 3 km of swimming. For Michelle Clarke, an experienced athlete with over 30 years of running under her belt, this was her first swimrun and after the race she wrote this great race report, enjoy!

I was listening to the radio the other day, and a marketing group had asked a bunch of senior citizens what advice they would give to the young people. The top piece of advice was “when opportunity knocks, open the door.” That has always been the advice I’ve lived my life on. When the opportunity popped up to be one of the first people to take part in the very first SwimRun competition in Canada, I had to say yes and now I can say I’m a swimrunner.
