Registration is now open for Immeln Swimrun 2016,
inviting contestants to challenge the most beautiful and conserved wilderness in Southern Sweden.

Immeln Swimrun is a unique race through varied nature in Östra Göinge, the mythic borderland between Skåne and Blekinge. Competing two by two the team fastest from A to B will win the race.

Divided in 28k trail running and 3,4k swimming, the race stretches from Breanäs to Immeln and runs through majestic beech woods, across beautiful Islands and into dark waters. The course is designed by Henrik Larsson, experienced orienteer and chairman of FK Göingarna.

The Course

The race starts with a swim from the beach at Breanäs to the western shore of lake Immeln. From here competitors head to the forest for a rather long run before reaching the shore and swimming to Vejlön. After crossing the island and another swim, athletes reach the most northern point of the race. From Draget the race course leads towards Mjönäs and the longest run of the race before reaching the islands located in the centre of the lake. 

Second part of the race starts with several swims and runs across a few smaller islands that takes the athletes back to the western shore. 

Last part of the race is completed running through beech woods and a final swim across the bay to the goal at Immeln village.
