Description

Teamwork. Adventure. Endurance. Challenge.
This is SwimRun.

It started as a bet in 2002 and grew into the now famous Öttilö race series.

It is an endurance event completed in teams of two. Participants will alternate between overland runs and open water swims all while staying within 10-meters of their partner. Camp YI, Long Hunter State Park and Lake Percy Priest is a fantastic place for a SwimRun event in Tennessee – Sunday, October 6, 2019.

Teams include all-male, all-female, and mixed-gender and will remain with their teammate for the entire race. This is not a relay.  Participants will swim in their shoes and run in their wetsuits to minimize transition time and gain a competitive edge.

Located just 35-minutes from the Nashville Airport, Camp YI is a 175-acre Youth Summer Camp that is graciously opening their doors and property up to use for the weekend. We want you all to feel like kids again! It is situated on a peninsula overlooking Percy Priest Lake, where you will be swimming.

Races:

Long Course – Approximately 13.5 Miles (11.5 miles of running and 2 miles of swimming)

Short Course – Approximately 8.5 Miles (7 miles of running and 1.5 miles of swimming)

You will experience the beauty of the surrounding areas and get the try "Otillo", or Island to Island feel. The Long Course will experience four islands and the Short Course three. Both short and long course events will start and end at Camp YI. After leaving Camp YI, athletes will swim across the peninsula to Long Hunter State Park, run their trail, then jump back into the water as you island-hop back to Camp YI.

Camp Accomodations:

You can stay at one of the rustic, open-air cabins for a small fee. There is no electricity or a bathroom in these — yes, we mean rustic — but there are a few bathhouses where you can shower and clean up.
Additionally, you can tent camp or bring your RV for a small fee too. There are no hook-ups as it is in an open field at the camp.
