ÖTILLÖ Swimrun Engadin
The Engadin Valley is the first place we went to when we wanted to take the sport of Swimrun out of Sweden. The exceptional beauty of the valley speaks for itself.
The Engadin Valley is in the Swiss Alps with the well-known St Moritz in one end of the valley. The valley has several pristine mountain lakes on the valley floor and also some at altitude, up in the mountains. The trail- running is awesome with some very good vertical. This race is a real test for the athletes.
In July the flowers are in full bloom and the kite-surfers fill Lake Silvaplana on windy days. The weather in this period can really be anything from a nice summer day to a cold, hard day out. Be mentally prepared for the worst and enjoy the best.
The water is clear and crisp with some sections around 11 degrees C, some of the swim sections are long. Dress smart! Do not take the altitude of the course lightly. We strongly suggest several days of on-site to get used to the altitude.
