Odyssey SwimRun @PeaksIsland
August 11, 2019$300
The event in Maine, organized by Odyssey SwimRun (formerly SwimRun USA), was the first swimrun race to be held in the United States; the year was 2016.
The Casco Bay Islands SwimRun has a long course and a short course, both of which change each year. The long course – a total of 21 miles and more in the swimrun tradition – starts on Peaks Island and finishes on Long Island. The short course involves running a total of 9 miles and swimming 2 miles. Most long-course teams take 5 to 6 hours while short-course participants typically take 4 to 5 hours.
The race mostly appeals to endurance or multisport athletes, like triathletes, looking for a demanding challenge and an unpredictable backwoods-type adventure.
