ÖTILLÖ SWIMRUN ENGADIN
July 8, 2023
This race is like a fairy tale. It is the race that launched the international swimrun movement as the first race ever outside of Sweden.
The Engadin Valley is in the Swiss Alps with the well-known St Moritz in one end of the valley. The valley has several pristine mountain lakes on the valley floor and also some at altitude, up in the mountains. The trail- running is awesome with some very good vertical. This race is a real test for the athletes.
In July the flowers are in full bloom and the kite-surfers fill Lake Silvaplana on windy days. The weather in this period can be anything from a nice summer day to a cold, hard day out. Be mentally prepared for the worst and enjoy the best.
