The SwimRun is a competition variant for endurance athletes: running on natural paths and Swimming through open waters without changing clothes in between. Four Swedes came up with this idea and competed in teams of two on a 75 km distance over 23 islands around Stockholm privately. The principle "Ö-TILL-Ö" (in English "from Island to island") spread widely. So in 2006 the first official competition took place in Sweden, meanwhile there are over 40 SwimRuns there, traditionally started as a team. Moreover the fun factor increases and it is easier to overcome harder passages when competing as a team.
