THE RACE

SwimRun Maryland is at Greenbrier State Park in western Maryland. Enjoy the man-made, fresh water lake and rolling terrain of the park trail system. Choose either the long course or short course distance. Both race distances are appropriate for all experience levels including first-timers. 

WHAT IS SWIMRUN?

Take on a challenge different from anything you’ve experienced before. Traverse through a pre-marked course in nature alternating between running and swimming. Swim legs consist of open water lake swims while run legs are on fire trails and natural surfaces. Athletes typically participate as a two-person team of men, women or mixed but individual options are also available.  ​​​

As a team, you must remain within 10-meters of each other, this is not a relay. You share the experience, the fun, the beauty and the suffering.  

Rules permit swim aids such as hand paddles, pull buoys, even fins if you are so inclined but there are no transition areas and all gear must stay with you for the entire course so choose wisely.

COURSE MARKINGS
The run courses will be marked by colored marking flags. The swim course will be marked with Orange buoys indicating the start, course and finish. There will also be staff directing traffic at the start and end of each leg. The swim course is the same for each SWIM leg and is marked by Orange buoys. Swimmers must keep buoys on their RIGHT shoulder for the duration of the swim.

Due to the configuration of the run courses we will follow a color-coded system. At the start of each run leg (aid station), you will need to pick-up a colored rubber-band indicating which loop you are about to start. You will follow the marking flags matching the color of the rubber band you have on your wrist. You will trade that color for the next color as you pass through the aid station to begin your next run segment. The run course colors are:

Leg 1: Yellow Run

Leg 2: Orange Run

Leg 3: Green Run

Leg 4: Blue Run

Leg 5: Purple Run (long course only)

Leg 6: Pink Run (long course only)

Leg 7: Run to the finish – no band needed.

Additionally, in areas where there is along stretch of running, marking tap will be placed on trees to indicate a confidence mark.
