This exhilarating race includes biking (mountain or hybrid), trail running/trekking, kayaking, coasteering, orienteering, and a secret treasure map challenge!
Yellow Creek State Park hosts our first annual SwimRun event! This event will consist of a "mock Otillo" style race, where participants run and swim in multiple alternating sections along a lake and trail course layout. This means that you'll be carrying all of your run and swim gear with you for the entire race! Some course details will stay under wraps until the day of the race, but essentially the course will alternate between swimming and running multiple times, with distances totaling approximately 1 to 2 miles of water and 10 to 15 miles of land. Think of it as a combination trail run and open water swim. Landsharks welcome!

2. Swim gear - as you deem appropriate. Personal flotation devices (PFD's) will be allowed, however must be worn or carried for the duration of the event.
