Atea Jönköping Swimrun 55km-race

*** A preliminary athletes’ guide is now available! ***

The starting signal of Atea Jönköping Swimrun will be given June 6th at 08:30 for all main distances. 55 kilometres is our longest and most challenging distance, which suits only the most experienced Swimrun athletes. This is our main race distance with a substantial amount of price money to race for – 20.000SEK for the winner of each class (men/women/mixed**). Prices, in the form of merchandise, is awarded to the 2nd and 3rd teams in each class. This is also an exclusive race with only 10 team spots available – register early if you don’t want to miss it!

The course is to a large extent shared with the 35 kilometres distance, but extended with a challenging segment up the Huskvarna mountain, where you get to enjoy “Klevaliden” with its downhill ski slope. The course is composed of varying paths and roads, both asphalt, gravel, dirt roads, forest paths, and stairs. In summary, the race is composed of 45.8 kilometres running (531 metres elevation) and 9.35 kilometres swimming, spread out over 22 run segments of 0.3-5.35 kilometres and 21 swim segments of 0.1-1 kilometres. Two changes have been made since 2018; the first run segment is now longer, to warm up and spread out the field of athletes before the first swim, and a new swim segment in Vattenledningsparken.

More details about each segment can be found in the table below below the maps, and the table with detailed maps at the bottom of the page (now updated for 2019).

 

** Note that a class must consist of at least two (2) participating teams in order for price money to be awarded in that class. If a class has only one team, that team may compete for the price money in the nearest class, i.e. a single women’s team may compete for the price money in the mixed class etc.
