As Swimrun has rapidly evolved over the past 15 years, it has become a general consensus that the larger the pull buoy, the better.
However, we are total converts now to using large Euro-style pull buoys for Swimrun and we see the days of using a tiny by comparison old-school pool-style pull buoy for Swimrun coming to an end.
Until then, we love seeing how people rig their DIY pull buoys—and we have some thoughts on what works best. Swimrun teams need to carry their pull buoys with them during run legs and tucking it under your arm like a football is, umm, inefficient.
This reality has led to some pretty cool innovations that are competing for the title of best setup. Most of these were DIY jobs before companies started selling them with strategically placed holes or straps for mounting, but the DIY culture is still alive and well and is on display at every event.
We would even go so far as to say that DIY-ing your Swimrun pull buoy is a rite of passage that all Swimrunners should go through.
In general, there are several popular mount styles that Swimrunners have devised to carry their pull buoys during run legs.
The Green Heron Alehouse in Danbury, NC will be the site for the start and finish, package pickup and all related activities. The actual events themselves are held outside of the Alehouse and that includes package pickup etc, but you can have delicious beer within.
We of course could not run such an event without great partners and we are thrilled to present them here. SwimRun races are team events with 2 athletes per starting team, and these teams can be either all male, all female or gender mixed.
Athletes on the same team have to be within 10 meters of each other at all times, and they are allowed and encouraged to help each other.
Typically teams swim with the running shoes on their feet, and run while still wearing the wetsuits. With so many transitions in SwimRun events, it makes no sense to get undressed and dressed over and over again.
Pull buoys, tethers and paddles are legal in these events, but when used must be carried from start to finish. Other equipment is mandatory and you can read the detailed rules and regulations below.
A SwimRun participants acknowledge and understand that a SwimRun endurance event is comprised of multiple and alternating transits of varied terrain and open water swims may present unique and unexpected hazards outside the control of race organizers, local governments and private property owners whose property the course may utilize.
A The race course will consist of alternating trail running routes and swim legs in the lake at Hanging Rock State Park and the Dan River. The running routes will be marked at various points along the course, swim legs will be designated by markers at each entry and exit point.
B Athletes may stray feet from the main trail to pass other athletes or to avoid obstacles but any other deviation from the marked course shall be grounds for disqualification.
E All equipment listed at the pre-race check must accompany the teams at all times and be present for gear check at package pickup and possibly also at the finish.
Failure to meet this condition will be grounds for disqualification. A Aid stations will be sited at various locations across the course for fluid replacement and nutrition.
Special needs should be carried by the athletes as needed. C Team members must remain together at all times throughout the event and cannot be more than 10 meters apart.
D The race organization can refuse a team from continuing if they are judged to be incapable of competing safely due to fatigue or injury.
E The race organization reserves the right to alter, shorten or otherwise change the course at any time as a consequence of weather or other unexpected course conditions beyond their control that may jeopardize the safety of athletes.
A Throughout the course checkpoints will be established that must be reached by all teams. We have 2 cut-off times that teams need to reach in order to continue racing.
This is meant for athlete safety and also in fairness to the volunteers on course. One reason is safety: two team members can help each other, for example if one gets cramp.
In the swimming sections, especially, it is important to pay careful attention to each other, says Michael. Four friends were sitting together in a hotel bar drinking a beer.
They wondered whether it would be possible to go from the island of Utö to Sandhamn, where one of the four ran a hotel, purely by swimming and running, without assistance: a distance of about 75 kilometres, no mean feat.
The same evening they decided on the route, which leads over 26 islands, and set the rules: competitors would have refreshments at three restaurants along the course, and the losers of the race would pay the bills.
The next morning, they set off in teams of two; it took them more than 24 hours to complete the route. Swimrun was born. Two of the four friends, Michael Lemmel and Mats Skott, developed the personal challenge into a professionally run contest.
The pair subsequently decided to turn Ötillö into a world championship, adding qualifying races at other locations. The Engadin, with its high mountains, lush forests and sparkling lakes, scattered along the valley like pearls on a necklace, is the most soughtafter destination.
The organisers were lucky: the weather was perfect, pictures of the event went around the world and sparked international excitement for Swimrunning.
In the Engadin mountains, we run from lake to lake. The popularity of Swimrun really took off with the introduction of additional shorter distances.
Ötillö Engadin also features a Sprint Race Fanny Josefine and Patrik Widell, who travel the world as a sports-loving influencer couple, entered the Sprint Race and have come second.
Some have struggled with hypothermia, others have suffered sprains, and quite a few are running with a stoop or limping. All of them, however, have a smile of satisfaction on their face.
Winners drink from the lakes 80 of the 98 teams that entered the race have reached the finish within the set time.
The winning team comes, unsurprisingly, from Sweden. These days, however, it is nature lovers who come here to explore the beautiful Val Trupchun, which boasts the greatest abundance of game in Europe.
