SwimRun Gorges du Verdon
"Dive, the effort has only just begun..."
Great new routes for the Swimrun Gorges du Verdon, an Ultra Swimrunman and 1,400 m of swimming in Europe's largest canyon.
Following the success of its first 2 editions, Swimrun Gorges du Verdon returns in 2019 to the delight of Swimrun lovers and the program is enticing.
For the first time, three distances are available from Les Salles-sur-Verdon. In addition to the usual Classic Swimrunman and Half Swimrunman formats, the very first Ultra Swimrunman France will be launched in 2019, positioning itself as the true premier distance of the weekend.
SwimRun is practiced in pairs, this reinforces security and creates the team cohesion necessary to overcome the sequence of events.
This event is intended to be "natural", the walking routes are traced in a natural environment, and the panoramas offered by the organizing committee to competitors, on Lake Sainte Croix and the valley, are breathtaking.
For the competitors.
