Our new sprint distance

WEST12K is our new sprint distance which we introduce for the first time this year. The course runs along the western shore and islands of Lake Immeln and is divided into six swims and five runs. The longest run is 5k and the longest swim is 500 m.

The race starts at Breanäs with the longest swim of 500m. From here competitors head south running through the forests before reaching the shore of Lake Immeln. After crossing the renowned islands “Kvinnoöarna” a more technical trail starts that runs through the beautiful beech woods on the western shore. Then the teams swim across the lake to the eastern shore before following gravel roads towards Immeln village. The race is completed by a final short swim before reaching the finishing line and jubilant spectators!
