“Lake Vassivière and its islands are also nicknamed the little French Canada. Here, the swimrun takes you on a journey”
Lake Vassivière holds its secrets for you like a hitherto unexplored territory… It looks like Canada but with the patina of old stones and the Limousin cows on top.
Taken from the very essence of the discipline, namely moving from island to island, the practice of swimrun finds its place perfectly.
An international challenge combining swimming and running in pairs, offering 3 events: the SPRINT (11km), the CLASSIC (23km) or the HALF (38km) labeled ÖTILLÖ Merit Race, qualifying for the world championships. This race also joins the SwimrunMan France circuit.
This swimrun race in New Aquitaine promises a total change of scenery. Starting from the island of Vassivière you will have to take to the water in this real inland sea, with clear and limpid waters of more than 1,000ha of surface area, to come to the end of the SWIMRUNMAN ÎLE DE VASSIVIERE challenge.
On June 4, 2023 nearly 1,000 athletes will take the start of this new SWIMRUNMAN France by HEAD stage to compete in a spirit of mutual aid and solidarity in this very natural challenge. And you?
