Swimrun. The sport where amphibious beings run around islands dressed in wetsuits while tied together by bungee cords… If this is what comes to mind when you think of this fast-emerging form of multisport then you’d be right, but it’s so much more than that says 220’ s editor Helen Webster.
“Swimrun appealed because I love the adrenaline rush of trying something new. My first event was ÖtillÖ Isles of Scilly and, with 30km of trail running and 7.5km of swimming split over around 17 stages, it was gruelling, make no mistake! See it as an adventure not a race, though, and you’ll soon marvel at the beautiful and wild nature these events are held in.”
