ÖTILLÖ SWIMRUN UTÖ
June 17, 2023
Utö is where the whole swimrun movement started and where the late-night bet which became ÖTILLÖ was made. It is an island in the southern part of the Stockholm archipelago almost 90 minutes from Stockholm. Utö has a year-round population and a great hotel, Utö Värdshus – our home away from home. In mid June you can feel summer has started; flowers are blooming, the grass is green and the trees have come to life after a long winter.
ÖTILLÖ WORLD SERIES UTÖ
June 17, 2023
This is a challenging yet beautiful race. The varied course, the water temperature and the very strong group of participants will challenge everyone to put in their best performances.
The running is mostly trail running and the sections are very varied. They are on dirt roads, single tracks, cliffs and rocks, completely off-road and with some challenging short, steep sections to climb.
The open water swim sections are many, most of them are relatively short. You will find out quickly if you are good at transitions. Some swims are protected and some are very exposed. Prepare for some rock n roll swimming. Those who will manage the whole course will have a magical experience. Race in pairs or solo.

ÖTILLÖ SPRINT UTÖ
June 17, 2023
The ÖTILLÖ Utö Sprint course is like a boiled down version of the World Series course with lots of short sections and many transitions between trail running and swimming. This course is seriously fun.
An ÖTILLÖ Sprint race is the perfect swimrun race for those of you who feel that the World Series is too much or for those who want to go fast. Traditionally we have everything from very strong racers to absolute beginner Swimrunners doing the Sprint distances. Race in pairs or solo.

ÖTILLÖ EXPERIENCE UTÖ
June 17, 2023
The Experience course on Utö is great. It has several short swim and running sections and you get a real taste of what swimrun is like in the Stockholm archipelago.
The Experience race is exactly what the name implies, a swimrun experience for those completely new to the sport or for those not ready to compete over bigger distances.
Race alone or come as a team and enjoy the ÖTILLÖ Experience.
