DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

Sweden’s toughest swimming race in open water is carried out in Vidöstern. This year you can choose from four distances:

  • 42km – an ultra-ultra challenge
  • 21+km – a race for the toughest, a performance out of the ordinary.
  • 6km – a race for the tough ones, although we call it our sprint distance
  • Lilla, 0.5km – a distance that suits those who have not tested open water swimming before.

Wetsuit obligatory but you can apply for an exemption.

Audience

I created Outdoor Swimmer in 2011 (initially as H2Open Magazine) as an outlet for my passion for swimming outdoors. I've been a swimmer and outdoor swimmer for as long as I remember. Swimming has made a huge difference to my life and I want to share its joys and benefits with as many people as possible. I am also the author of Swim Wild & Free: A Practical Guide to Swimming Outdoors 365 a Year and I provide one-to-one support to swimmers through Swim Mentoring.
