Swimrun Norway proudly presents Swimrun – To the World’s End. After a fantastic race in August 2018 we will be racing for the fifth time at 24 th August 2019.
Through the day, you will experience more than 20 islands in the Oslofjord, the most beautiful archipelago in Norway. The race starts at Ringhaugstranda and ends at the World’s End, the southernmost tip of the island of Tjoeme. Several of the islands are part of the national park Faerder Nasjonalpark. Every time you get to a new island, you run over it and swim to the next island. The longest swim stage is 1,100 m and the longest run stage is 8 km. In total you will cover over 53 km of running and 9,000 m of swimming.
Swimrun to the worlds end is a unique race in the most stunning skerries. You compete in teams of two persons, and the first team to reach World’s End wins. We have women’s, men’s and mixed teams. You only need a partner, a wetsuit and a pair of running shoes to compete.
Swimrun to the worlds end is one of the toughest one-day events in Norway. You will need endurance, swim and run skills and the ability to navigate on and between the islands. The run courses are marked, and the swim stages will be marked by flags and banners.
The race offers great nature experiences and a fierce battle against the elements. You can’t stop, you have to keep on fighting. There are three cut-off times and five aid stations with food and fluids. We are very serious about the safety and therefore, every competitor will race with a GPS tracker. Furthermore, we will have plenty of safety boats and volunteers along the course.
