Swimrun is just what it sounds like, a sport that involves swimming and running, with multiple transitions as you go between disciplines. Participants are usually in teams of two and teams negotiate challenging, but beautiful terrain and open water swims.
Like triathlon there are different distances varying from super sprint (under 10km) to ultra, which is over 75km.
