Torpedo SwimRun: into the Wild – Entries open

The section of Kaaimans River that forms the outline of the famous ‘Map of Africa’ is a nearly impassable route. It’s a place that few have seen – the experience is reserved for those in the ravine. We’d love to share it with you; it’s wild, knarly and alluring. 

The date for our second SwimRun race has been set for the 14th and 15th September. It kicks off at Ebb and Flow with a Friday evening Prologue and lamb on the spit by the waters edge. Saturday is the race and will be the first of our freshwater SwimRun experiences.

Prologue
3 Runs =5km
4 Swims =1km
Total =6km

Race
5 Runs =17km
4 Swims =4km
1 Swamble =5km
Total =26km

The 26km Wilderness route connects two black rivers and features:

  • A technical Swamble* (a rugged combination of swim and scramble) down the Kaaimans
  • The 36m high train bridge crossing of the tidal estuary
  • A national parks run segment on the Kingfisher trail through Fairy Knowe
  • The doubleheader of the longer trail run onto the longest swim across Island Lake
  • A final swim up the Serpentine river to finish
  • Rest and relax and enjoy the Ebb-and-Flow riverside camp before returning home
