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.
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.
