ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series Hvar, Croatia, in pictures
The 2018 ÖTILLÖ swimrun season kicked off with a stunning race and a hard fought battle at the 2nd edition ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series event on the island of Hvar, Croatia. The Mediterranean setting had all the perfect ingredients to make for a spectacular yet very tough swimrun race.
The 40,4 kilometres long course was a true test, alternating technical trail running with long, challenging stretches of open-water swimming.
George Bjälkemo & Pontus Lindberg, Team Garmin (SWE), managed to pull away from the leading pack and cross the finish line as the first team after 5:15:41, almost five minutes ahead of Peter Aronsson & Fredrik Axegård, Team Swimshop.se (SWE).
