  1. Hi, I’m interested in doing one of these events with my partner next summer- the latter part of the summer – after June. How long would one need to be training for in advance? Are the prep races on the same course as these qualifier races?
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    • Hi Nicole! I’m sorry for the very delayed reply. The race at Solvalla, Finland is one of Ö till Ös partnership races. The winner in each category qualifies to next years ÖTILLÖ, Swimrun World Championship. We have one whole distance competitition, which is ca 34 km running and 6 km swimming. This race is quite though and I would recommend proper training before participation. If the main race Solvalla Swimrun doesn’t suit you right now but you still want to experience the atmosphere of this unique competition, register your Team to the Swimrun Sprint race. The Swimrun Sprint is a race of 12 km running and 2 km swimming. As in the main race there are 3 classes: women, men and mixed. The sprint race does not require excess training to complete, but I would recommend regular running and swimming training, which will make the completion easier. Let me know if you have any questions regarding the Solvalla Swimrun race, which takes place on Sept 24th 2016. If you have questions regarding the other races please be in touch with the Founder of Swimrun and race director Michael Lemmel: michael@otilloswimrun.com . BR, Alexandra , The Solvalla Swimrun Team
