Jonny Brownlee might have smashed it for Team GB at the World Triathlon Series Stockholm yesterday, but next week sees a multisport race of a very different kind in Sweden as 300 athletes line up to take on the epic ÖtillÖ World Championship.


The original race of the fast-growing sport of swimrun, the event is in its 12th official year and on 4th September sees the athletes race in teams of two across 26 islands of the Stockholm archipelego. They take in tough forest trails, navigate rocky unmarked sections and battle with strong currents. In total, the course takes in 75km of beautiful yet challenging terrain with 65km of running and 10km of swimming in the Baltic Sea.

New records?

Suspense is growing ahead of the race too as last year saw records tumble as the winning men’s team, Swedish Armed Forces (Daniel Hansson and Lelle Moberg, both of Sweden) smashed the course record by 16 minutes and finished for the first time in under eight hours, coming in in 07:59:04. With Lelle sadly injured this year though, it hasn’t yet been announced who will partner Daniel for the 2017 race.
