The Swedish sport of swimrun is one that many people may not be familiar with. Originating in 2006 from a drunken bet, the sport morphed into an event called the OTILLO, or “island to island.”
The Casco Bay SwimRun is a two-person race through the Maine archipelago that prides itself on being the only OTILLO qualifier in North America. The event isn’t a relay race; rather, teammates must race the entire course together.
As the Casco Bay SwimRun website puts it, “Having the right teammate and equipment can make all the difference.” Choose wisely.
