Unlike traditional aquathons, Swimrun Sydney combines swimming and running in a two stage event, involving teams of two completing the course with multiple legs of each discipline, swimming and running in the same gear and carrying everything you need for the race from start to finish.
The Sydney event is located along the harbour foreshore from Rose Bay to Watson’s Bay in Sydney east and consists of a total distance of 17km made up of 3km in swimming and 14km in running – that’s 12 swims and 13 runs.
The event is well run by local ex-Bondi lifeguard Adriel Young, and the gift packs are well stocked with sponsor product.
If you’re looking for the ultimate challenge this summer, then look no further than the Swimrun – just be quick to enter as places are strictly limited and entries open 1 November.
