Swimrun ranking

The Swimrun ranking is a “team only” ranking system we have developed to be able to select teams to ÖTILLÖ, The Swimrun World Championship. The ranking points are only available at ÖTILLÖ World Series races and at ÖTILLÖ Merit races. The points are based on the overall results of the race. No matter which category (men, women or mixed) you are in.

  • 40 % of the points are based on your overall result in the race.
  • 60 % of the points are based on your time in relationship to the average time of all finishing teams. This means that teams finishing very close together get very similar “time points” in relationship to their position and vice versa. This means that the ranking points are performance driven.
  • Races are weighted differently as the World Series races are more difficult to perform well in compared to the Merit races. The base points are multiplied by a co-efficient that are as follows: ÖTILLÖ World Series Races x 1,25 and ÖTILLÖ merit races x 1,0.
  • All teams that finish a race get ranking points.
  • Your points will devalue with 75 % after 365 days from getting them, after 24 months they will disappear completely.
  • Your six (6) best points over the last 24-month period will count towards your ranking (this means that devalued points might be exchanged for more current points).
  • If you change partner you are a new team.

Make sure your team points are current and that you have claimed your results for 2020 and for 2021. You do so via
