Head Swimrun Series by Garmin

What is it?

In 2002, Anders Malm and Janne Lindberg decided to make a bet with brothers Mats and Jesper Andersson to determine who would be the fastest to cross an archipelago of islands in Sweden in a straight line. The 75-km journey combined a distance of 65 km on foot and another 10 km of open-water swimming, and the only requirement was that they had to carry any items they were to use with them during the entirety of the race. It took them nearly two days to cover the route.

Since 2006, the Ötillö Swimrun World Championship has been held along the same route. What started out as a bar-room bet has turned into one of the most booming sports of our times: SWIMRUN.

The HEAD SWIMRUN SERIES by GARMIN was created with the goal of combining the best Swimrun races in Spain, using a circuit that upholds the spirit and adventurous nature of the sport’s origins. Races in wild places of incredible beauty, organized with the highest quality, safety, and environmental protection standards.

There are three categories, all of which are for pairs:
men, women, or mixed.

The leading pair in each of the three categories will receive prizes valued at over €14,000.

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

Although the key aspect required to take part in the HEAD SWIMRUN SERIES is enthusiasm, we recommend that you be well equipped to get the most out of these races. Here are our recommendations:

Key for protecting yourself from the water temperature and providing buoyancy. It is vital that the suit is flexible and comfortable to prevent sores, and it must be able to be opened from the chest in the running sections of the trials, facilitating breathing and perspiration.

We recommend footwear with trail soles and good traction that can adapt to any type of terrain, including wet ground. They should drain well to allow water to pass through them quickly and easily.

You can use a GPS watch to check the route, allowing you to avoid losing time, and monitor your pace and physical condition during the race. Plus, it is a key accessory for your training.

Comfortable goggles with a good fit. Silicone goggles are recommended. Low profile goggles increase hydrodynamics and improve your vision.

Light, comfortable, and resistant to help you move efficiently through the water.

Swimming with shoes will weigh down your legs, so a pullbuoy will help to give your lower body buoyancy. We recommend that you carry an elastic band with you so that you can strap it to your leg or around your waist during the running section.

These will make your legs more buoyant for swimming with shoes, in addition to protecting your lower legs.

A 7-metre elastic cord to connect partners to one another and keep them together, even in rough seas. It is also useful for helping one another during certain stretches of the race.

A safety accessory that is compulsory in most races, and which must be incorporated into the neoprene suit to ensure it is always at hand.

Silicone cap, usually provided by the organiser, for enhanced visibility and easy identification.
