ÖTILLÖ ISLES OF SCILLY
Location Isles of Scilly, Cornwall Date 8-9 June 2019 A ferry journey that will probably turn you green. An impossible to predict weather system. And a true endurance test involving 40km of swim-running. Welcome to ÖtillÖ Isles of Scilly, adventure racing in its purest sense.
Set on the mystical, mostly car-free specs of paradise (pop. 2,300 over the five inhabited islands) some 35 miles off the Cornish coast, ÖtillÖ Isles of Scilly is the Swedish swimrun pioneer’s sole UK offering.
The World Series event features a minimum of eight swim legs totalling around 8.3km and 29km of trail running (shorter Sprint and Experience races are also on offer), and standing before pairs of athletes in the rural idyll are ocean swells, rocky outcrops, wince-inducing waters and calf-busting beach runs. But, also, the most welcome post-race Cornish ale and pasty you’ll ever consume. otilloswimrun.com
