The global movement of SWIMRUN have added a new sense of adventure to multisport formats. This unique composition of swimming and running entails participants to interchange between the two without changing clothes, and carrying everything they need for the race with them.

The sport normally involves teams of two, however with our EPIC BLUE, TURKEY - SHORT EXPERIENCE - format, you have the option to register as a solo participant as well.

In accordance to the SWIMRUN tradition, we have created this race on the three original pillars:

STRIVE

A race which will combine speed in some parts and technically in others, all whilst you are immersed in breath-taking scenery.

SHARING

The pleasure of sharing those memorable moments with friends and partners.

PRESERVE

Limited plastic usage and supporting key conservation causes.
