Around 10 km sprint distance is a new race added to calendar in 2019.

After organising two successful long distance Swimruns we wanted to create a shorter race with the same unique Strömfors atmosphere and great course as our main event. This short course sprint is perfect for the ones not wanting to go for full distance but wanting to experience the unique sport of Swimrun.

Swimrun sprint features trail running and swimming in Strömfors surroundings, swims are held in Kymi river and Kukul lake, runs circulate on undulating trails and forrest roads around Strömfors. To make participating as easy as possible individual class was added to the race. Final race course will be published on January.
To prepare for the race day without hassle, and to enjoy the whole weekend of Swimrun action and after race atmosphere in Strömfors, book accommodation to you and your team at our Krouvinmäki Boardinghouse. More info and bookings here.
