Welcome to the Ultraswimrun family - Welcome to our world
Just like the ÖtillÖ race was created from an urge for adventure, so was Ultraswimrun. We began our journey already in 2008 while preparing for our first swimrun race. What started with homemade training sessions around the race course, grew to longer and harder excursions into the archipelago outback. The desire to explore kept us going and the experience made us live to the fullest. With this, both Ultraswimrun (USR) and Adventure swimrun (ASR) was born.
Everyone is an adventurer, but Ultraswimrun is not for all. It doesn’t get any tougher than this. You will need to have extensive experience in both open water swimming and long-distance running, a strong endurance capacity and the will of few.
We at USR swimrun like the originals did. Less restricted, natural and adventurous, and far away from commercialization and the pursuit of making money
In 2016, the Stockholm Archipelago Ultraswimrun Challenge (SAUC) - Arholma - Landsort was conquered, all 265 km of it. From this date, SAUC remains an open fastest known time (FKT) challenge for the few who want to test their abilities to the max and possibly to become a #sauclegend. Its just waiting for you to go!
