SwimRun Rheinsberg

June 30, 2024


The SwimRun Rheinsberg - refreshingly harder, refreshingly different!

Where does it come from?

Four Swedes came up with this idea and competed privately against each other in teams of two over a 75 km distance across 23 islands around Stockholm. The principle of "Ö-TILL-Ö" ("from island to island") spread and quickly led to the first official competition in Sweden in 2006. There are now over 40 SwimRuns there. The idea finally made it to Rheinsberg in 2016. Since then, it has been impossible to imagine Rheinsberg without the SwimRun.

Be there on June 30 in Rheinsberg.
