Exactly one hour after the first starting time that occurs on Friday night (24:00), the competitors run an additional 4500 meters and swim 500 meters with a one hour window for completion. These distance loops are repeated hourly and are held on the SPRINT course. The race ends when the last runner or runners either concede or fail to finish the distance within the allotted time frame. If two or more runners finish the race with the same number of laps completed, the competitor with the fastest last lap wins.
This is a solo race. You have to be 18 years or older to compete in Långholmen Swimrun Backyard Ultra and be able to swim at least 200 meter. Participation takes place at your own risk. Support is allowed after finishing a loop, but not during a loop.
