Description

SWIMRUN MARYLAND

Greenbrier State Park, May 8, 2021 - FORMALLY IGNITE SWIMRUN MARYLAND

SwimRun Maryland is at Greenbrier State Park in western Maryland. Enjoy the man-made, fresh water lake and rolling terrain of the park trail system. Choose either the long course or short course distance. Both race distances are appropriate for all experience levels including first-timers. 

WHAT IS SWIMRUN?

Take on a challenge different from anything you’ve experienced before. Traverse through a pre-marked course in nature alternating between running and swimming. Swim legs consist of open water lake swims while run legs are on fire trails and natural surfaces. Athletes typically participate as a two-person team of men, women or mixed but individual options are also available.  

​As a team, you must remain within 10-meters of each other, this is not a relay. You share the experience, the fun, the beauty and the suffering.  

Rules permit swim aids such as hand paddles, pull buoys, even fins if you are so inclined but there are no transition areas and all gear must stay with you for the entire course so choose wisely. Some small safety gear is also required such as a water proof compression bandage and whistle.​
