After succeeding for years in the Scandinavian archipelagos, the swimrun discipline reaches Catalonia by the hand of Besttrail and Neda el Món to bring to the Mediterranean coast the adventure and fun of swimming and running in some of the most spectacular landscapes of our geography.
Swimrun is a sport where speed, endurance and tactics play an essential role. It is practiced by same-sex or mixed couples and combines mountain running and open water swimming in continuous sections without transitions. A real adventure by land and sea that will delight the most intrepid athletes!
To celebrate this double arrival and in order to expand this new discipline here at home, Besttrail and Neda el Món have decided to join forces and twin the two events taking place this 2016: the Swimrun Costa Brava, in April, and the 1st Neda el Món Swimrun Barcelona, in November.
The Swimrun Costa Brava, which will be held on April 17, will kick off the season with all the honors. With four distances to choose Ultra, Marathon, Sprint and Short, the Costa Brava Swimrun will make you enjoy idyllic settings such as the Natural Park of Cap de Creus, the Natural Park of Aiguamolls de l’Empordà and the Natural Park of Montgrí, Medes Islands and Baix Ter. Three different scenarios, three areas of great biological value that are the essence of the Mediterranean climate.
The 1st Neda el Món Swimrun Barcelona will take place in the coast of the Catalan capital on November 20, starting in Cabrera de Mar and Premia de Mar and arriving in Badalona. The waters, trails and promenads of Maresme and Barcelonés will be the setting for this adventure, which will bring you to historic spots like the Burriac Castle, spectacular sea views among the vineyards where the Alella Do wines grow and the icònic postcard beauty of the Pont del Petroli.
From Besttrail and Neda el Món we invite you to step into this new experience and bring your love for swimming and running to a new level. See you there!
