Welcome to Kuopio Swimrun website!

I'm Sampo Hyppölä, the race director of Kuopio Swimrun, a pharmacy student and a non-professional Swimrunner. The main page is reserved for my Finnish swimrun blog otherwise it's all about Kuopio Swimrun race here!

Kuopio swimrun was first time organized in 2018 with a small enthusiastic group of swimrunners all around the country. Then there were nice and warm summer day on the top of the hill Neulamäki despite the pouring rain at the end of the day. 2019 the competition centre was changed into the area of School Neulamäki where the infrastructure made it possible to bring up the event without sacrificing any meters of the lovely terrain. And that was just what we did! In 2020 there were already more than twice as much of us there as the year before. What a race with such a lovely feelings!

Fabulous views, great swims and tasty refreshments have been mentioned to be characteristic to Kuopio Swimrun. Route signs and guidance are something we really want to be great at. As the organizer I would especially highlight the varied trails. These terrains will challenge everybody giving the glorious swimrun feeling on the finish line.

Warmly welcome to Kuopio Swimrun 2021!
