ÖTILLÖ Hvar is the first race in the 2017 ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series and also the first race you must win to be able to win the 1 million SEK cash prize - our challenge to all endurance athletes; if a team wins overall in all 6 ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Series + the ÖTILLÖ Swimrun World Championship in 2017, they win 1 million SEK.
The island of Hvar, off the Croatian coast by Split is an amazing Swimrun location. The water is crystal clear, water temperature is about 16 - 17 degrees C andon a sunny day we will have air temperatures of about 20 degrees. The course is challenging with long swims and with some good vertical up and down. Together with Roman ruins, beautiful architecture, blooming wild flowers, smell of Rosemary and wonderful people this makes up for a perfect setting.
It is easy to get to, flight to Split, an easy bus transfer to the harbour (about 35 minutes) and then a 65 minute ferry ride to the town of Hvar. The ferry leaves at 2 pm and at 4 pm - check out the ferry timetable
On Hvar we have organised a fantastic hotel deal at Hotel Amfora and most of us will be staying at the same hotel. All functions will be in the same place and it is a 5 minute walk to the start and finish line. If you want more than the superb breakfast at the hotel then they have a dinner offer at 12€/ person as well. You will not be dissappointed!
The Sprint in Hvar is awesome, where you get a big taste in amicro format. Bring your friends and family and be part of the weekend.
