Updated May 2024

The My SwimRun Championships series is aimed at athletes who are interested in all distances, such as Sprint, Standard, Half Marathon, Marathon and now Ultra distances. The cooperation of leading events in different countries provides local taste and culture with local authentic organisers.

According to Andreas Sachs, Director of MySwimrunChampionships, "the Championships are held annually for each distance at a different location, which gives athletes the chance to race based on different personal strengths. The different locations feature local races with different flavours, local smells and culture".
