It started as a bet in 2002 and grew into the now famous Öttilö race series.
SwimRun Georgia is an endurance event completed in teams of two. Participants will alternate between overland runs and open water swims all while staying within 10-meters of their partner. Red Top Mountain is the perfect place for a SwimRun event in the Georgia.
Teams include all-male, all-female, and mixed-gender. Participants will swim in their shoes and run in their wetsuits to minimize transition time and gain a competitive edge.
Sprint Distance Race: You will start with a short run to the first cove where you will begin to travel clockwise around the mountain. Teams must remain within 10 meters of your partner at all time. Wetsuits are required and hand paddles, pull buoys are allowed.

This race will involve approximately 4 miles of swimming and 9 miles of running. You must remain within 10 meters of your partners at all time.
