More: What is SwimRun?

Run, swim, scramble, repeat. SwimRun is a growing sport that entails teams of two participants making their way together around a point-to-point race course with alternating segments of running and open water swimming. Teams may be female, male, or co-ed.

Teams must bring all their gear with them to minimize transitions. Participants run in their wetsuits and swim with their shoes. Partners are tethered during the swims, and safety is the number one priority. Fun is close second!

The Summer Solstice SwimRun swims are in rivers and freshwater lakes. Sometimes there will be weeds. There will certainly be mud and rocks. This is Maine. The run segments vary from the paved Old Canada Road Scenic Byway (Rt. 201) and neighborhood streets, to packed dirt roads, grassy runways, rolling fire roads, ATV trails, single track, and outright rock-hopping.
