Solvalla Swimrun is organised for the 5th time in Noux National Park, located in Espoo, Finland on the 22nd of September, 2018. The race goes trough the challenging and ever changing, but extremely beautiful, Finnish forest landscapes. In this swimrun competition you take part in teams consisting of two persons and run together from one lake to another and then swim over the lakes. There are three competition classes in each race: women’s, men’s and mixed.
Solvalla swimrun consists of three different races:
ÖTILLÖ MERIT RACE
The Solvalla Swimrun ÖtillÖ Merit Race is a total of 38,8 km, of which 5,8km is swimming. The ÖtillÖ Merit Race is a combination of the Sprint and Endurance routes, which means that you will encounter both technical running paths and trails, fast running trails and tough vertical elements!

The Endurance route is 25km of which 3,5km is swimming. As this distance is longer than the sprint race, it naturally requires a higher level of endurance resistance from the participants than the sprint race. The running sessions in Solvalla Swimrun Endurance are not as technical as in the sprint distance, but there are still very tough elements in this race. Some of these elements are: a staircase of about 350 steps and the notorious Swinghill downhill skiing slope just before the finish line. Read more >>
The Solvalla Swimrun Sprint race is an extraordinary experience for you who want to try out the sport and enjoy the experience. The Sprint race is a total of 15 km, of which 2,5 km is swimming. The race is quite technical, so we recommend you to stay alert during the running session! Read more >>
of the Solvalla Swimrun participants are satisfied with the race and strongly recommend Solvalla Swimrun to their friends!
“A big thank you to your team for organizing such a great well planned and executed event and the friendly hosting. A hug on the finish line is more than a tired swim runner could ask for 🙂 and it made all the difference.”
The nature and the path you had chosen for the race were excellent. The switch from the swim and the run parts and the intervals were designed well and balanced. The trace over the path, the buoy in and at the exit of the swimming stations were clear and visible. It was impossible to get lost.
Participants in the ÖtillÖ Merit Race 2016
We truly loved your race! Extremely well organised and friendly atmosphere. We appreciated the reactivity of the correspondence with you before the race and that you were there to greet us when we finished. The race was tough but fun, beautiful and well marked and the swimming parts were magical!!! The lakeside sauna session and the buffet after the race were gold. We almost did not want to leave! We give you 5 of 5 stars!
