Swimrun is a sport born in Nordic and Scandinavian countries in 2005. It is a combination of mountain running and open water swimming. This sport competition requires velocity, resistance and strategy. Practicing Swimrun gives, above all, an intense and exciting relation with the scenery (Sea and land scenarios) that athletes go through.
The fact that almost one third of the Costa Brava and the Girona Pyrenees is natural protected area should give you a good idea of what you’ll find there: eight spectacularly contrasting natural parks, with just a few kilometres separating the snow-capped Pyrenean peaks from the Mediterranean’s most charming beaches and coves.
And in such a short distance there’s room for fishing villages and high mountain rural towns, for Romanesque monasteries and churches, for Iberian settlements, Greek and Roman ruins, Jewish quarters and mediaeval fortifications, and for the surrealist legacy of Salvador Dalí.
