1st Edition of the Swimrun Lanzarote

The Fariones Sports Center organises the first edition of the Swimrun contest in the Canary Islands.

It is a dual-team aquathlon alternating running in several terrains: beach, rocks, piers, trails and road, with open-sea swimming without transitions. The participants swim and run alternately with the same clothes, which means that they have to swim with snickers and run with a neoprene suit.

  • It is a new sport combining cross-country running with open-water swimming.
  • The participants compete in dual-teams (male, female and mixed).
  • There are no stops or transitions, only provisioning spots.
  • All the equipment that the participants start with has to be carried all the way to the finish line.

This sport is similar to the aquathlon, with the difference that it is a continuous itinerary and it includes several specific rules: the participants have to run, swim, run, swim, run… but as a dual-team.
