In 2018, a SwimRun race is coming to Victoria. SwimRun is an exciting, fast-growing sport including split segments of open-water swimming and trail running. Athletes swim in their running shoes and run in their wetsuits.
Beautiful Thetis Lake Regional Park is the home of the only SwimRun event on Vancouver Island, making its debut on August 12th, 2018. While many SwimRun races involve frigid ocean swims, this freshwater SwimRun event is accessible to athletes without specialized equipment, yet will still be thoroughly challenging for all you hardcore adventure seekers!
The course covers a range of terrain from flowing trails to steep climbs and plunging descents. This course will challenge your limits.
The challenging full course consists of 4 swim legs totaling approximately 4000m and 4 run legs totaling approximately 24K. The short course consists of 2 swim legs totaling approximately 1800m and 2 run legs totaling approximately 10K. More details about the distances and profiles of each segment will be available shortly.
Say hello to SwimRun.
