ÖTILLÖ SWIMRUN MALTA
November 5, 2022

Malta is a melting pot of many cultures. From the Saracen to the Knights templar, with amazing cultural buildings and heritage. Malta is in the Southern Mediterranean with flight connections all over Europe. In the shoulder months the water is warm and the air temperature is perfect for Swimrun. The island is dry, with a coast line full of coves and inlets. The trail- running is fast and the swims are spectacular with extremely clear water.

The area around the finish line is a small swimrun heaven with lots of trails and great swims. If we have some rare rain the mud sections will be a special treat.

This is a perfect trip to the Mediterranean, to visit historical sights and to enjoy some sun and warm water.


  
ÖTILLÖ WORLD SERIES MALTA
November 5, 2022


This race course has everything you can dream of in an ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series race. It feels remote with lots of transitions and it is stunning.

The ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series distance starts on the beach and traverses the island to come back along the coast. The swims and the runs can be challenging depending on the weather and winds.You will be where crystal-clear swims dominate, barren trails, small fishing villages with a breath-taking swim to the finish line. Along the way you will find some surprises.

This is for sure a swimrunners course with lots of transitions, tricky water entries and exits, big runs, open water swims and no place to rest. Race in pairs or solo.

ÖTILLÖ SPRINT MALTA
November 5, 2022


The Sprint course in Malta is a swimrunners dream. Lots of up and down, tricky trails, amazing swims and quite a challenge. All contained within a small area.

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 MALTA
November 5, 2022


The ÖTILLÖ Experience Malta course starts and finishes in Golden Sands, with a beach start and with a beach finish. It has some great short runs and beautiful swims. The views are spectacular. This course is a beautiful introduction to swimrun.

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 Swimrun experience in Malta.
