Swimrun Clinics

Our clinics are intended for you to get your feet wet-- to try swimming in runners and running in a wetsuit, even if you have not registered for our event! We have scheduled two totally free, Sunday morning swimrun clinics for you, on:

  • September 15th, 2019 at 8 AM at Sarsons Beach 
  • September 22rd, 2019 at 8 AM at Kinsmen Park

These clinics are a great way to try out this crazy new way to race an endurance multisport, Europa style!

On Sunday, Sept 15, 2019, we will be meeting at Sarsons Beach at 8 AM to do a figure-8 training session, consisting of 3 runs and 2 swims done solo over the last part of the long course Urban SwimRun for a total distance of about 6K (4.4K of running, 1650 m of swimming)--at total of about 60-75 minutes of training.

On Sunday, Sept 22, 2019, we will meet again for a clinic, this time at Kinsman Park at 8AM to do another figure 8 training session on a different part of the race course, again 3 runs (1.3K, 2.3K and 0.65K) and 2 swims (650m and 450m), total distance of about 4.5 K. This clinic will introduce you to the first part of both the short and the long course event.

All you have to do is show up with all of your regular open water swimming and running gear (no need for a bike!)--your wetsuit, a swim cap, goggles, and runners--a little before 8 AM to get oriented.  No partner necessary.

You can even bring paddles and a pull buoy for your swims if you want, or try tethering with a partner. In swimrun races, anything you use on the course you will have to carry with you to the finish line.

Both clinics allow you to just do half the workout if you prefer.

So...  If you are up for the newest form of open water/adventure racing, come on out to give it a try. It is easier than you think.

If you have any questions, check out the rest of this website where both courses are outlined, or contact us at info@swimrunkelowna.com.

Bring a friend! We hope to see you out!
