SwimRun Boston captures the essence of the sport and the historic city of Boston. The event is scenic, fun and exciting. As a participant in the race, you’ll swim in the open waters of the Atlantic ocean and run overland on the scenic and historic Boston Harbor Islands. Following the race, enjoy food and beer as you celebrate with friends, family and other competitors at our post-race party! Register now for one of the best Swimrun races of the summer and start training with friends. It will be a blast for athletes, as well as volunteers, friends and family members!
With over three (3) miles of open water swimming and 13-plus miles of overland running, racers will be challenged every stroke and step of the way as they navigate their way from south to north throughout the Boston Harbor Islands towards the downtown skyline.
Racers will be challenged by the Altantic Ocean’s open water, changing currents and tides as they make their way throughout Boston Harbor.
After long stretches in the water, racers will be greeted by a mixture of overland terrain ranging from well manicured trails to craggy rock and everything in between.
Come celebrate with your fellow competitors for our post-race party! All racers, friends, family members, spectators and volunteers are welcome to enjoy to a great day on the Harbor Islands. Our partners and vendors will also be there at the after party providing fun activities and giveaways for all!
