7th Kuopio Swimrun will be the Swimrun World Championship race on Ultra distance and a Qualifier race on all the distances!

Discover the world's widest swimrun sceneries in Kuopio, Finland!

Kuopio Swimrun is a unique swimrun adventure through the wild Finnish nature. The terrain consists of narrow forest trails on the Neulamäki Nature Reserve and various lengths of swims around the Lake Kallavesi Archipelago. The water temperature is around 20 °C.

Come to enjoy the utter peace of the wilderness and the hospitality of the local volunteers along the whole race. The long hills and the technical trails challenge your entire body and that's why we have a rich energy serving along the course.

The most traditional way to "Finnish" the tough swimrun day is to enjoy the evening at Luoto -  Finnish Sauna World, located right in the heart of Lake Kallavesi.
