All the best,
Sandhamn Swimrun



A swimrun festival uniting the participants with the beautiful nature, as well as the crowd.

As racers our self we know how much it means to hear cheering shouts from spectators with frequently and excited clapping hands while you are pushing your self to your limit. So that’s what we wanted to create. Sandhamn Swimrun will offer a pulsating course even when you leave the village behind on the extensive paths along the island, where you find energy to give it your all. We want to give you an end of summer festival with teams achieving goals, a lot of spectators, cheering crowds and supporting families the whole day long. The course is friendly and you easily move around to cheer your team on as a spectator or just enjoy the last days of summer in the most beautiful archipelago in the world and soak in the atmosphere.


A full day together with the crowd.

The race will take place on the 30th of July, 2017, and will feature live music, family activities and of course the race itself.
