It started as a bet in 2002 and grew into the now famous Öttilö race series.
It 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. Camp YI, Long Hunter State Park and Lake Percy Priest is a fantastic place for a SwimRun event in Tennessee.
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.
