The first ever SwimRun race on Vancouver Island is this Sunday at Thetis Lake. The full course SwimRun Victoria is a challenging 28K combination of 4 swim legs and 4 run legs that will test the physical and mental toughness of each participant. There is also a short course offered with 2 swim and 2 run legs that will still let participants truly experience of what the venue has to offer.
The course maps and elevation profiles are available on the event website. There is a King of the Mountain segment sponsored by Driftwood Brewery that has been nicknamed “The Monster”. Be prepared to suffer and then be rewarded by one of the best views on the lower island.
Our pre-race social and post race awards party are hosted by the Six Mile Pub, the oldest pub in BC. Participants will experience the Six Mile’s unique blend of traditional pub offerings with fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Arbutus Physiotherapy will be on hand at the race to help athletes with their post race recovery.
All participants will receive a unique SwimRun Victoria trucker hat, a custom SwimRun Victoria race tank, a SwimRun Victoria silicon swim cap, a coupon for free Driftwood beer, and entry for great prizes from Colting Wetsuits and Frontrunners Victoria.
