Due to the pandemic and the restrictions (that will remain in June 2021), we have a new race arena and a completely new 15km course. Start and finish will be at the Axamo beach, west of Jönköping. Planned start time is around 10:05, in a second start wave after the 35km start at 10:00, but depending on the restrictions at race day, start waves may be distributed over a longer period of time – we will keep you informed!
15km is our shorter distance, suitable for newcomers to swimrun, or anyone who wants a shorter race. The course is flat and easy, and primarily uses existing running paths and gravel roads in the Axamo area. The swim segments primarily use the Axamo lake. The course consists of 2 laps of 7.5km each, overall 9 run segments (0.25-2.1 km) and 8 swim segments (0.1-0.5 km), in total 12.5 km running and 2.5 km swimming.
There is a changing room with showers at Axamo beach, but please be aware that restrictions will apply (currently we plan for a maximum of two teams changing at the same time, and only one person at a time may use the showers). We therefore recommend to change and shower at home if possible. Toilets are available in the race arena only. Please arrive early for the race registration, to avoid creating queues.
More details about each course segment are available below the overview map. There is also a GPS track for download, which can be used in an app or sports watch with GPS capability.
