Special instructions for the Kuopio Swimrun Ultimate-racers:
The race can be done in pairs or as an individual. The route is marked throughout the course. The ultimate race is only suitable for competent swimrunners. The longest swim (Swim 1, 1700m) is guided by safety boat. Thereafter the Ultimate course goes the long course loop twice. During the first loop there will be no boat assistance and therefore it will be mandatory to use safety buoy by organizer a short part of the course (between Energy 3 and 4). The second loop will be normally assisted such as long course race. There will be energy stations every 4-7 kms throughout the whole race. Between the loops (at the competition center) you are allowed to store and have energy of your own.

The Cut Offs are calculated with the maximum total time of 10 hours. The swimrunners who are late for the announced Cut Offs will be directed to the shortcut. The start for the second loop must be happened no later than 11.20 am. These Cut Offs are defined to ensure the guidance and the energy supply for all the racers during the Kuopio Swimrun competition.
