What is SwimRun

Canaqua Sports is proud to be working hard to build our Mudskipper SwimRun Challenge series across Canada

SwimRun is a multistage event where participants alternate between swimming and running over a given distance. Swimming aids (Paddles, fins, pull buoys and wetsuits) are permitting, but must be worn/carried during the run. Likewise, running shoes must be worn or carried during the swim.

When SwimRun first started it was primarily a team sport when teams of 2 people would travel through the course together. While within the Canaqua Sports Mudskipper SwimRun Challenge we do have some races with a team division, our main focus is on Individual SwimRun, where athletes compete not only against each other, but also against the ruggedness of the course. Both of these challenges make our events exciting and challenging for all.
