Over 260 races in the world and more are on their way – Plus de 260 courses prévues dans le monde

L’an dernier, il y avait environ 200 courses dans le monde; aujourd’hui nous sommes déjà passés à 260. Chaque mois, plus de courses sont annoncées et c’est génial. Nous aimons ça!

Swimrun keeps growing in many directions and on many levels. The 2017 season hasn’t even started but we can now look forward to races in 24 countries.

This item is not something you hear much talk about, but a lot of people use it, and you mostly see home-made examples out there, even though there exists are a few factory-made ones.
