SwimRun is a unique and challenging adventure sport where teams of two compete by alternating between running and swimming on a challenging course covering trails, beaches, ocean, cliffs, rocks, and paths.

The sport accommodates for the new generation of heroes – wanting to push themselves and become extraordinary.
