Swimrun is the new endurance sport that is sweeping the world. Participants are usually in teams of two and in each race there will be multiple transitions between the two disciplines as teams negotiate challenging, but beautiful terrain and open water.
Like triathlon there are different distances varying from super sprint (under 10km) to ultra, which is over 75km.
