Swimruncamp - Sea experience in the Outer Archipelago
Outside Idöborg there is challenging swimming around cobs and skerries. If you want to run a swimrun, we have a track in the area. During the weekend we also make an excursion to the islands to the south (Ormskär, Brunskär, Brunskärs Trätskär), where it is possible to swim in narrow straits, canals, bays and lagoons.
Tid och plats
04 Aug 2021, 14:00 – 06 Aug 2021, 15:00
Idöborg, Idoborg, 130 36 Nämdö, Sweden
The outer archipelago outside Nämdö offers fantastic opportunities for swimrun and swimming in open water.
Outside Idöborg there is challenging swimming around cobs and skerries and along Long-cut rocks. If you want to run a swim run, we have a course over Långskär and into the western part of Böteskobben and Kalvholmen, but many exciting short swimming distances. Nämdö offers soft, varied paths, in primeval forest-like areas.
During the weekend we also do an adventure excursion to Skoboraden (Ormskär, Brunskär, Brunskärs Trätskär) where it is possible to swim in cramped conditions straits, canals, bays and lagoons, with shorter running distances over cliffs.
We have our base at Idöborg just outside Nämdö. There we live in a single room in cozy house (several shared bathrooms and toilets), and full board. Breakfast in peace and quiet outside or inside with beautiful views. We bring packed lunches our adventures during the day. The newly built sauna with sea view will be one nice relaxation after today's adventure. The dinner will be two dishes in relaxing environment outside or inside. We are simply close to nature as well when we are not training.
We train just outside and around Idöborg on Nämdö and in Skoboraden. When we make our adventure excursion to the archipelago south of Idöborg we paddle in about 45 minutes. If necessary, we also have transport assistance by boat.
We keeps the group together and makes sure everyone is involved. The experience and feeling good is what we are most looking for. Of course we train and challenges us. We test new things and get tips and tricks about swimrun, swimming and about training in the Archipelago.
The leader is Ulf Hausmann, who is a professional swim coach and expert swimming and swimrun and Jonas Hållén who paddled and swam in the area in many years and that helps us find the pearls among the islands in the area.
