These points will be essential for future participation in ÖTILLÖ, the Swimrun World Championship, as teams will be selected based on this ranking. Furthermore, the only teams that will be allowed to participate in the ”random ticket selection” are teams with ranking points.

Ranking points counting for the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship selection will be based on your ranking on December 31st each year. As Solvalla Swimrun 2018 is one of the first ÖtillÖ Merit Race of the 2019 season you can start gathering points for next year’s swimrun season! Use the momentum of your 2018 swimrun season to kickstart 2019 and get ahead of your competition with ÖtillÖ ranking points in your backpack! #usethemomentum
