SwimRun Rottnest

The first ever SwimRun race to be held in Western Australia, presented by SwimRun WA, will take place on the beautiful Rottnest Island on Saturday, 1 April 2017, starting and finishing at Thomson Bay.

The Rottnest SwimRun is going to be a serious endurance challenge but also thoroughly enjoyable, as you swim and run your way around one of the most picturesque landscapes in Western Australia.

Competitors will circumnavigate Rottnest Island, covering a total distance of 32.7kms. The course consists of 10 swim legs (total of 4.1 kms) in the most beautiful bays of Rottnest, and 10 run legs (total of 28.6 kilometres), which will consist of a mix of beach running, trail running, and road running (see course map). 

SwimRun is a team event and each team has 2 people, both of whom complete the entire course side-by-side.

There are 50 team spots (100 competitors in total) consisting of male-male, female-female and male-female teams.
