Welcome to Kuopio Swimrun
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!
