ÖTILLÖ SwimRun Engadin

Saturday, july 04 2020 – Sunday, july 05 2020

The SwimRun competition is a 45 kilometer race in the Upper Engadin. Taking place for the first time in 2014, the SwimRun now has a save-the-date in every athletes race calendar. SwimRun in the Engadin stands for cold water, warm air and all at an altitude of 1800 meters over sea level.

The mountain lake Lag da Cavloc is a jewel and not the only highlight of the race. The first downhill passage is demanding due to roots and rocks, the rest of the trails are, with a few minor exceptions, not difficult and absolutely no problem for experienced racers.

The swimming routes are mostly calm and all the more beautiful due to the mountain panorama. The typical Engadin wind kicks in in the afternoon causing the swimming passages to be a bit choppy with a current. There are two lengths available, both done in team mode.

The SwimRun weekend in Silvaplana kicks off with the round course sprint on Saturday. The ÖTTILLÖ SwimRun Engadin starts in Maloja on Saturday and finishes in Silvaplana after a few loops. There are quite some meters of altitude on both courses, and they should not be underestimated!


The detailed program of the SwimRun course will be published here shortly. Initial information about the event can be found on the ÖTILLÖ SWIMRUN-Website.
